The English Premier League (EPL) is set to witness an epic encounter today, when Chelsea welcome Manchester City at Stamford Bridge, in what could be a decisive match for Liverpool being crowned champions.
Although a win will be important for Chelsea in their quest to finish among the top four, it is also a must-win for City who can keep Liverpool waiting to be crowned EPL champions.
In 2016, Chelsea Fc handed Leicester City the EPL title by holding Tottenham Hotspur to 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Tottenham needed to win the match to make the championship race to the last games and they were on their way to doing so, closing the first half, 2-0, and raising the possibility that they would cut the point gap between them and Leicester to five points, with two matches to go.
However, Chelsea fought back in the second half and equalized, handing Leicester City their first league crown in more than 100 years. Chelsea victory made it impossible for Tottenham to catch Leicester leading the league with 77 points. Tottenham have 70 points, with two games remaining.
History could once again repeat itself today, at the same stadium, this time round being City. A win for Chelsea or any draw will mean that Liverpool win their first-ever Premier League title, and a league title after 30 years of waiting.
Having played 31 matches, Liverpool lead the table with 86 points, 23 ahead of second-placed Manchester City who have 8 games to play. That means that my draw or loose will automatically make Liverpool winners, or City could win and keep The Reds waiting.
If City wins, the clash could be headed back to Etihad where the two sides will meet in the next round.
