dinary but it is unusual. Merely three other teams in premier league have even hit the 50-point spot at this stage of the season and each of them – Chelsea in 2005-06, Manchester United in 2006-07 and Manchester City in 2017-18 – went on to be capped champions. History is on their side.

Liverpool superbly submitted the old Division One title to Arsenal almost 30 years ago at the end moment of the final match of the season. When Michael Thomas ran through to score.

Most of us remember the 2013-14 near miss below Brendan Rodgers for the Chelsea fall that gave control of the title race back to City. But it is worth noting too that, despite Liverpool winning a memorable match at Anfield. Had they been able to avoid defeat at the Etihad on Boxing Day? The point swipe would have been enough to win the title.
Liverpool ended fourth beneath Roy Evans. Seven-point shortage to ultimate winners Manchester United due much to the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson’s side did the double over Liverpool. If Evans team could pick up two point they will come on top again.
