The reigning Premier League champions will play a direct role in how their successor is crowned.
Manchester City (19-3-7; 60 points) hosts Burnley (11-6-12; 39 points) at Etihad Stadium on Monday in a game that has massive implications for Liverpool’s title challenge. A City win would mean Liverpool couldn’t clinch the league any sooner than July 2, whereas the Sky Blues dropping points means the Reds can seal the deal Wednesday.
Of course, Burnley has much more to play for Monday than a role in helping Liverpool clinch. The Clarets can move to four points back of fifth place with a win, and even a draw would keep them in striking distance of UEFA Europa League qualification (depending upon the results of the FA Cup). Playing in Europe would be a monumental achievement for a club of Burnley’s stature, and they can really dream with a good result against City.
