The Premier League Title Race
This year, the Premier League title race has been closer than ever, with the result coming down to the final day. Both Liverpool and Manchester City have been battling it out for the whole season, with each team taking the top spot at various points throughout the year.
On average, the Premier League winning points total is a mere 88 points. However this year, as things headed into the final weekend, Man City and Liverpool were on 95 and 94 points respectively, with both teams having had seriously impressive campaigns.
If City win their game at Brighton, the title will go to Manchester for another year. But, if they draw or lose, and Liverpool win their game against Wolves, then the Premier League trophy will go to Merseyside for the first time! Liverpool have won plenty of trophies, but they haven't won the top flight of English football since 1990, nearly a thirty-year wait - before the Premier League was even established!
UPDATED: Manchester City subsequently won their game against Brighton 4-1, with Liverpool also winning their game against Wolves. This result means Man City won the Premier League Title by 98 points to 97 - a Premier League points record!
Both teams have cup finals in the coming few weeks too, which potentially alters plans for their football trophies to be paraded through their respective cities. Liverpool have the Champions League final to contend with, against Spurs, while Man City have the FA Cup final against Watford to potentially turn their year into a treble trophy winning season.
