Liverpool’s championship doubts in 2020 were only only by the COVID-19 shutdown. With a whopping 23-point lead over second placed Manchester City, not giving the Premier League title to Jurgen Klopp and his men would have been criminal.
After settling for a scoreless draw against Merseyside Derby rival Everton on Sunday, the Reds have two eyes on their Wednesday match against Crystal Palace as a win mathematically would clinch the title.
Crystal Palace comes in with a bit of momentum, though. Four consecutive clean sheets have seen as many wins for Palace it fights to qualify for UEFA competition for the first time ever in its 114-year history.
Manchester City fans will be happy to learn that there are two games to enjoy this week. It kicks off this week’s action against Burnley on Monday, and then has the opportunity to end any thoughts Chelsea has about achieving second place on Thursday.
On Wednesday in Italy, Atalanta vs Lazio is a matter if fourth vs second places in the league table, and Lazio only trails Juventus by one point. A loss for Lazio would be a death blow in its campaign for its first league title in ten seasons.
Before weekday action begins, there are only seven more games for Benfica and Porto to find some separation in Portugal’s Primera Liga. They’ve been neck and neck all season, and both are in action on Tuesday as they stand even in points.
