STORY: The city of Liverpool awaits with eager anticipation ahead of a Premier League match in London that could end 30 years of misery without a league title.
Manchester City take on Chelsea on Thursday night (June 25) knowing that nothing more than a win will crown Liverpool champions for the first time in the Premier League era.
City trail Juergen Klopp's men, who eased past Crystal Palace 4-0 on Wednesday night at Anfield, by a mammoth 23 points with only eight games in hand.
Should City manage to grab all three points at Stamford Bridge, Liverpool can secure the title next Thursday with at least a draw when the pair meet at the Etihad.
