The Premier League 2021-22 title is all set to be decided on the final matchday of the season this Sunday. Heading into matchday 38, Manchester City and Liverpool are the two teams in contention for the crown.

Pep Guardiola’s City, the reigning champions, are the favourites to retain their title. Set to play Aston Villa at home in their final match of the season, Manchester City top the Premier League table with 90 points from 37 matches.

A win against the 14th-placed Villa will be enough to hand City their eighth domestic football title.

Liverpool, meanwhile, will have to hope that City drop points on Sunday to have a chance at the EPL title and keep their quadruple chances alive this season. Jurgen Klopp’s charges have already won the League Cup and the FA Cup this season and are also in the UEFA Champions League final.

The Reds are one point behind City and the upcoming home game against eighth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers will be a must-win contest for Mohamed Salah and Co. If they draw the match, their title hopes depend on City losing against Villa.

If they do manage to clinch the title, though, it will be their 20th English domestic crown, which will bring them level with arch-rivals Manchester United for the most EPL titles won in the history of the competition.

The final matchday of the season will also see a couple of important fixtures at the bottom end of the table with Leeds United and Burnley looking to avoid relegation.

Both teams currently have 35 points from 37 matches but Burnley are 17th with a better goal difference of -18 while Leeds are 18th, in the relegation zone, with a goal difference of -38.

The equation, however, can still change after the final matchday if Leeds manage a better result than Burnley when they play against Brentford in the final matchday and manage to climb to the 17th spot.

Burnley, meanwhile, face Newcastle United in the final matchday of the season and only need to match Leeds’ result to stay up.

All final matchday fixtures in the EPL 2021-22, including Manchester City vs Aston Villa and Liverpool vs Wolves, kick-off at 8:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
