Goodison or Etihad; where might Liverpool clinch the title?

Just when Liverpool fans thought their season could not get any better, the prospect of sealing the title at the home of their nearest rivals Everton, or the current champions Manchester City, is now a very real one.

BBC Sport crunched the numbers to work out when and where Liverpool could become champions again.

Jurgen Klopp all smiles after victory

What needs to happen for Liverpool to win the title at Goodison Park?

To put it simply, Liverpool need to keep winning while Manchester City keep slipping up.Liverpool have an impressive points-per-game ratio of 2.9, while Manchester City are averaging 2.08.

If both sides continue at this rate then Liverpool could seal the title with a win over Everton on 14 March as their likely lead would be between 23 and 25 points, with just 24 points to play for after that game.

The triumph would be extra sweet for Reds fans given it was a goalless draw at Goodison Park last year that was one of the matches that proved critical in their failure to snatch the title from Manchester City.

The stalemate in early March was the last time Liverpool dropped points, with nine successive wins still not enough to overhaul Pep Guardiola’s men, who claimed the title by a single point on the final day of the season.

What needs to happen for Liverpool to win the title at Etihad Stadium?

Could Jurgen Klopp take the Premier League title from Pep Guardiola’s grasp in his own stadium?

If both teams win all their upcoming games, Liverpool could clinch the title at the Etihad on 4 April.

Liverpool, who have a game in hand on City, could go into that match on 91 points with the champions 19 points adrift on 72.

With just 18 points to play for after that game, Liverpool would only need to avoid defeat to wrench the title away from City in their own backyard.
