How Liverpool and City could have a PL play-off for title

Posted by

This season’s Premier League title race will go down as perhaps the best and most fiercely fought competitions in recent years.

Liverpool and Manchester City haven’t let each-other out of their sights since the very first weeks of the campaign. They’re the champions and we’re the challengers – and we’re taking them all the way to the final game of the season.

This title race is so close that there is potential for a one-off Premier League play-off for the title.

Victory over Brighton and Hove Albion would ensure the spoils for Pep Guardiola and his team, but if we were to finish level on points with City and we both have the same goal difference and goals scored then we’d have a situation on our hands.

Premier League rules stipulate that in such a scenario there would need to be a one-off match to decide who would be crowned champions.

This is where it gets a bit daft.

For this to happen – City would need to lose by a four-goal margin against Brighton and the Reds would need to draw against Wolves by scoring the same number of goals as Brighton.

I told you this is where it gets a bit daft; the most straight-forward example of this scenario is if City lost 4-0 and we drew 4-4 with Wolves.

If that were to happen – we’d have another big final on our hands.
