Chelsea play host to Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night, and the Premier League title could be decided with this game.

If Chelsea beat City tonight, Liverpool will be confirmed as Premier League champions, but a win for City will delay Liverpool’s title celebration.

Liverpool made one more step towards winning the Premier League title after they defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 at Anfield on Wednesday.

Liverpool are 23 points ahead of City, and Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has admitted that the bulk of Liverpool players will watch the game.

“We know we’re in that position but we won’t get overly excited,” Alexander-Arnold said.

“A lot of us will watch it tomorrow but not get too excited, we know Man City are a very good team. We’ve still got to prepare for the game next week regardless.

“We’ve still got seven games left I think and we’re going to try and get all 21 points from those games.”

It’s been 30 years since Liverpool won the league, and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted that he might rest players for tonight’s game against Chelsea.

Manchester City have an FA Cup quarter-final at Newcastle on Sunday night and it is that game Guardiola is prioritising.

“We can’t deny that we have one eye on Newcastle,” Guardiola said.

“Chelsea and Liverpool are prestigious but Newcastle is or game. A final. We have one eye.

“It depends on physical condition, the minutes they have played. We take a look a little bit at what is going to happen, not just Chelsea.”
