It’s hard to envision the Premier League race being tighter than this. Liverpool has a two-point lead with three games remaining, while Manchester City has four games left. Due to a cup fixture postponing City’s game against Manchester United scheduled in March, the race has been uneven when it comes to matches played. But that will change soon with the make-up date set for Wednesday, where a win for City gets them into sole possession of first, and anything else means Liverpool stays in the driver’s seat.

Here are the standings and the remaining schedule for both:

What needs to happen

Both teams have won their last five, so they’ve shown they can go on a substantial winning streak to end the season. If City wins out, they’ll win the league. If Liverpool wins out, they will need City draw at least a game. But what’s most likely is for neither team to win out and for the race to get even tighter. There is still a long way to go in what may just be the best Premier League title race ever. Buckle your seat belts.
