The Premier League is approaching, and we are a week away from knowing who the champion will be.
Manchester City settled for a 2-2 draw at West Ham United in the 37th round of the competition.
What are the coronation scenarios in the fierce struggle between Manchester City and Liverpool?
Manchester City raised his score to 90 points at the top from 37 games.
While Liverpool is in second place with 86 points from 36 games – that is, with one game less -.
Manchester City play their remaining match against Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, May 22nd.
Liverpool, in turn, has two matches remaining, the first at Southampton on Tuesday 17 May, and the second at Anfield against Wolverhampton on Sunday at the same time as the Manchester City-Aston Villa match.
Manchester City crowned
In order for Manchester City to be crowned, he needs one of the following scenarios:
- Winning in his last match without paying attention to the results of Liverpool.
- A draw in his last match, provided that Liverpool did not win at least one of his matches.
- Losing in his last match, provided that Liverpool lose at least one of their matches.
- Losing in his last match, provided that Liverpool drew in one of their matches, provided that the goal difference at that time was in favor of Manchester City.
In order for Liverpool to be crowned, it needs one of the following scenarios:
- Winning its two matches, provided that Manchester City lose or draw in its remaining match.
- Winning one match and drawing another, provided that Manchester City lose their match with a result that makes the goal difference in favor of Liverpool.
The English Premier League depends on the goal difference between the two teams tied on points.
Currently, Manchester City has +72 goal difference, while Liverpool has +65 but with less game played.
Thus, the difference is up to 7 goals between the two teams, and Liverpool will have to compensate for it if the two teams tied on points in the last round.
What happens if the goal difference is equal?
The goals scored are used, in which Manchester City are also currently superior, with 96 goals, compared to 89 for Liverpool.
What happens if the goals scored are equal?
Direct confrontation points are used, and then we will also not come out with a winner because the two legs of the two matches between Liverpool and Manchester City knew the same result: 2-2.
The next step is to resort to goals scored away from the ground in the home and away matches between the two teams, but then also they will be equal.
The last solution that can be resorted to to resolve the conflict is to resort to a playoff to decide the league title.
