Premier League endgame looms and more: weekend countdown – live!

There are just three matchdays left in the Premier League, readers. You can almost smell the end. But as Grace once warbled in 1994: “It’s not over, not over, not over, not over yet!” The weekend’s Premier League action kicks off at Anfield tonight when title-chasing Liverpool host relegated and rock-bottom Huddersfield at 8pm. If the Reds win they will go two points clear of Manchester City in their ridiculously high-quality blinking contest, meaning the Premier League lead would have changed hands a staggering 29 times this season. Pep Guardiola’s side travel to Burnley on Sunday afternoon, where they can snatch the lead back if they do the business and win there. Mind you, they drew 1-1 at Turf Moor last season.

Perhaps it’s not quite as cut and dried as many believed it to be after City’s 2-0 win at Old Trafford. Jürgen Klopp is certainly of that opinion. “It was not the last chance before the [City] game [against United]. Why should it be the last chance after the game?” he said. He also helpfully pointed out that although many have been saying that Liverpool and City are both champion teams this season, the title race “is like Highlander. Only one of us will be there at the end.” Unfortunately for Klopp, he doesn’t have an immortal Scottish swordsman in his squad.
