Liverpool’s progression to the semi-finals of the Champions League has dominated most of the headlines around the club recently, but the Reds are still very much in the running to finish second in the Premier League.
Manchester United’s 2-0 win at Bournemouth on Wednesday moved them four points clear of Liverpool with four games to play and they are long odds on to end the season as runners-up behind Manchester City.
However, United’s run-in doesn’t look easy and the race for second place could still have plenty of mileage left in it.
Jose Mourinho’s side host Arsenal on April 29, before visiting Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United in their next two games.
Both Brighton and West Ham are in desperate need of points as they bid to steer clear of relegation and both have taken a point off sides in the top five over the past couple of weeks.
United round off their season at home to Watford, but there are certainly no guarantees that they will navigate that quartet of games unscathed.
Liverpool start their final four fixtures with a trip to face bottom-of-the-table West Bromwich Albion and they look banker material at odds of 10/19 to pick up three points at The Hawthorns.
A home game against lowly Stoke City the following week should also hold no fears, but Liverpool’s hopes of overtaking United for second place could hinge on their visit to Chelsea on May 6.
There is likely to be little between the two sides in the betting for the game, but use this ComeOn voucher code to wager on the outcome.
Chelsea have failed to replicate the form that saw them sweep to the title in 2016/17 and Liverpool will fancy their chances of success having won on their last two visits to Stamford Bridge.
The Reds are unbeaten in their last six meetings with Chelsea and another victory could set them up nicely for their final match at home to Brighton.
Chris Hughton’s side are seven points clear of the relegation zone with four games to play and it’s highly likely that they will be safe by the time they visit Anfield.
A couple of slip-ups by United in their final few games could open the door for Liverpool to finish above their big rivals.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have a slightly better goal difference than their North West rivals and that could be the deciding factor in the battle for second place.
