When is the earliest Liverpool can win the Premier League?
It’s just a matter of when and not if Liverpool will win the 2019-20 Premier League title.
Monday night’s 3-2 win at home to West Ham United gave Jürgen Klopp’s side a 22-point lead over second place Manchester City, with just 11 games remaining.
The Reds are back in action on Saturday when they travel to relegation-threatened Watford. Manchester City do not play their next Premier League game until a week later as they face Aston Villa in the EFL Cup final this Sunday.
The earliest that Liverpool can wrap up the 2019-20 Premier League title is if City lose their next two games and Liverpool win their next two.
Manchester City’s next two games are away to Manchester United (Sunday 8 March) and then at home to Burnley (Saturday 14 March).
Liverpool’s next two games are away to Watford (Saturday 29 February) and home to Bournemouth (Saturday 7 March), meaning the earliest possible date is Saturday 14 March.
However, should City pick up 1-3 points from their next two fixtures, and Liverpool take all six, the Reds could seal the Premier League title at Goodison Park on Monday 16 March by matching City’s 1-3 points tally.
Should Manchester City win all their remaining games, the earliest Liverpool can be crowned Premier League champions is on Saturday 21 March, at home to Crystal Palace, by winning four consecutive games.
