2021-22 English Premier League Title Race: City still expected to take EPL title despite West Ham draw
On Sunday, a thrilling two-team tussle for the English Premier League title will come to a conclusion. But which team will be lifting the trophy when the dust settles? Will Manchester City win their fourth title in five seasons? Or will Liverpool win their second in three seasons?
For much of the season, the Premier League title race has been a two-horse race between City and Liverpool. City are seeking to continue their recent domestic dominance, as another league title would mark their sixth in 11 seasons.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are looking to draw level with fierce rivals Manchester United for the most top-flight titles in English football history.
While that would be a momentous achievement in its own right, the men from Merseyside are also looking to keep their dreams of a historic quadruple. They have already captured the EFL Cup and FA Cup, and they will face Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League Final on Saturday, May 28.
City Drop Points at West Ham to Keep Door Open for Liverpool
Ahead of the penultimate round of the season, City held a three-point lead and a superior goal difference over Liverpool.
But Pep Guardiola’s side had a slight stumble at West Ham last Sunday, which kept Liverpool’s hopes fully alive heading into Tuesday’s match at Southampton. City overcame a two-goal halftime deficit to level the match, but Riyad Mahrez missed a late penalty that would have all but retained the title.
