Manchester City can't lose, while Liverpool will be happy with a draw: The Premier League predictions

A look ahead to the action in England's top flight

Nine points is unthinkable for Manchester City, but that's how many they will be trailing Liverpool if they lose on Sunday.

A draw, at worse, would keep City in a position to pounce if there is any let-up in the Jurgen Klopp juggernaut. Ten wins and a draw out of 11 is no mean feat, and with that kind of form Liverpool could probably afford to share the spoils at Anfield.

We should be guaranteed goals and a thriller, and history tells us statements like that tend to backfire.

Leroy Sane scored the winner when the two sides last met in the league, and that result probably cost Liverpool the title. They will be itching for revenge in the last match of the weekend, kicking off at 8.30pm on Sunday.

Norwich play Watford in the first match at midnight on Friday, and a 12th game without a win will leave the visitors with nothing more than hope of escaping the drop.

Saturday kicks off at 4.30pm when goal-getters Chelsea host Crystal Palace, with Leicester against Arsenal at 9.30pm wrapping up the late action.

Manchester United against Brighton and Aston Villa's visit to the Wolves are the 6pm appetisers before the main fare at Anfield on Sunday.
