When can Liverpool clinch Premier League title? Examining scenarios after Reds drop points vs. Everton
Liverpool’s Premier League title celebration may have just suffered a slight delay. The Reds drew 0-0 at Everton on Sunday, meaning that they can no longer win the title on Monday. The result also means they are not guaranteed a chance to win it on Wednesday against Crystal Palace. Liverpool would need Manchester City to lose or tie against Burnley on Monday to make Wednesday’s match a title-clinching scenario.
Here’s Liverpool’s schedule and how the Reds can win the league:
Liverpool’s remaining Premier League schedule
- Liverpool 0, Everton 0 (6/21)
- June 24: vs. Crystal Palace
- July 2: at Manchester City
- July 5: vs. Aston Villa
- July 8: at Brighton
- July 11: vs. Burnley
- July 15: at Arsenal
- July 18: vs. Chelsea
- July 26: at Newcastle
Scenarios to win the league
- A Manchester City draw/loss on Monday vs. Burnley combined with a win vs. Crystal Palace on Wednesday
- Earn four more points the rest of the season
What’s the earliest the team can win the league?
The absolute earliest is Wednesday. But for that to happen, Manchester City has to fail to beat Burnley on Monday, and Liverpool would need to beat Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
Regardless of other teams‘ results, Liverpool could clinch on July 2 at Manchester City if it wins Wednesday.
How many points does Liverpool need on its own?
Not factoring in anything that Manchester City does, four more points will do it. So one victory and one draw the rest of the way will be enough for the title.
