On Thursday 25 June, it was confirmed that Liverpool had finally won the Premier League and broken a 30-year drought for another top-flight league championship. They didn’t have to kick a ball to do it, with Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea sealing the deal.
Now the champions-elect take their unassailable 23-point lead into the home of the team they vanquished for Premier League supremacy: Manchester City. It could have been the title decider, instead City will form a guard of honour for the Reds as they take to the field.
The title is no longer on the line, but Jurgen Klopp and his men are still chasing history, including a record points tally. How will they perform after a week of celebrating a title three decades in the making?

Who will win Man City vs Liverpool?
This is a tricky game to call. The Reds may still have sore heads from their victory celebrations, but they will also want to underline just why they are champions. Manchester City don’t have a lot to play for outside sealing another top-two finish, but they will want to exact a little revenge and perhaps suggest next season things won’t go Liverpool’s way. We’ll take the easy route here and opt for a 1-1 draw at Etihad Stadium.
