If Liverpool lose to Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday and Manchester City win their four remaining matches City will be the Premier League champions for the second time in three years. In view of that potential scenario Liverpool look a team to lay at the prices as they strive to be champions of England for the first time since 1990.
A month ago Liverpool were the outsiders of three to win the title but after a brilliant run of form and results are massively odds on to be champions again after a 24 year break. Liverpool are now assured of Champions League football so the season has been a success regardless of how the remainder pans out.
City have a harder run-in than Liverpool but both sides should win their last few matches after the weekend. Momentum is key in sport and if Liverpool were to lose against Chelsea the hard work of the last two months would be negated. They have won eleven league games in succession playing exhilarating football and would be worthy champions.
In the year of the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster it almost seems preordained that Steven Gerrard will be running around Anfield with the Premier League trophy. However, romanticism counts for nothing in elite sport and the magnitude of the achievement may even count against his colleagues.
