Their defeat to Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday means Liverpool no longer have the Premier League title in their own hands, but they do remain top of the league, ahead of rivals Chelsea and Manchester City.

However, Brendan Rodgers' side could find themselves down to third by the time they kick off against Crystal Palace on Monday night, should both Chelsea and City win their fixtures this weekend against Norwich and Everton respectively.

Ultimately, if Liverpool win their final two fixtures—at Palace and at home to Newcastle on the final day—and City win their three remaining games—at Everton and at home to Aston Villa and West Ham—the two sides would be level on 86 points.

City currently have a superior goal difference of eight goals, therefore making them favourites to lift the title on May 11th.

The Reds' full-back Glen Johnson claimed back in March that Liverpool were the neutral's favourites, saying: “Nobody wants the same teams to be winning it over and over again. I guess the neutrals will be packing a punch for us. We must be good to watch," as per ESPN.
