For Manchester City, the last segment of the championship can hardly be recorded as an asset. They lost points in those fights in which, it would seem, there should be no problems. Thus, in the last five rounds, the “townspeople” suffered three defeats. And if the failure in the match with Chelsea (0: 2) can still be attributed to the opponent’s strength, then the defeat from Crystal Palace (2: 3) at home and Lester (1: 2) can be regarded as a clear failure.
For Liverpool in the standings, the situation is as follows. Merseyside club is still leading in the championship. There were no special failures. The nearest pursuer, which is just Manchester City, they are seven points ahead and, if they succeed in the match, can seriously break away from the competition.
