Nothing is predictable in the EPL other than the fact we can take nothing for granted. The competition’s history is littered with famous upsets, shock results and David vs Goliath stories.

Returning to the slugfest to decide the 2022 champion, Man City are the current leaders with 73 points on the board against the 72 of Liverpool. The “Cityzens” carry stats of 23 wins against four draws and three defeats and a plus 52 goal difference. They are in the driving seat and although their advantage is a slender one, Man City fans know that if their team wins each of their remaining games, they will retain the league trophy.

It’s difficult not to be impressed by Liverpool’s turnaround this year with Klopp’s men battling to get back into the title race. They have worked ever so hard but it’s important to remember that, despite their heroics, they remain in second place. Liverpool hold season stats of 22 wins against six draws and two defeats with a superior goal difference to Man City.
When looking at their upcoming fixtures we see the Reds host Manchester United at Anfield on Tuesday 19 April before hosting Everton in the Merseyside Derby, going to St James Park then welcoming Tottenham to Anfield next month. There’s still all to play for but Liverpool know there’s no margin for error if they are to win the league.
