With the Premier League moving into its closing stages five teams can still take the title. Realistically, however, only Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City will be crowned champions of England on 11 May.
MSN Sport looks at what needs to happen for each team to lift the title.
Following their victory over Manchester City on Sunday – their tenth on the bounce – if Liverpool win their remaining four matches then they will finish the season in first place.
However, Liverpool still have to face Chelsea at Anfield, a match that will go a long way to deciding who will win the league. A draw would see Liverpool maintain their advantage over Jose Mourinho’s men but would mean they would need Manchester City to drop points if they are to be champions.
Currently, Liverpool can reach 89 points – more than anyone else.
Remaining fixtures: Norwich (A), Chelsea (H), Crystal Palace (A) and Newcastle (H).
A gritty win over Swansea saw Chelsea move to within two points of Liverpool, also with four games to play. While the Londoners must play Cardiff, Norwich and Sunderland that trip to Anfield is likely to be defining. However, the Anfield showdown is sandwiched between two legs of their Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid, so Mourinho will have to manage his squad extremely carefully.
Even if they do beat Liverpool, Chelsea will still finish behind Manchester City should the Manuel Pellegrini’s men win all their remaining fixtures: their destiny is not in their own hands.
Chelsea can reach 87 points, fewer than both City and Liverpool.
Remaining fixtures: Sunderland (H), Atletico Madrid (A), Liverpool (A), Atletico Madrid (H), Norwich (H) and Cardiff (A)
With six games left to play Manchester City have it all to do. Currently they sit five points behind Chelsea and seven off Liverpool but with two games in hand. Their toughest remaining fixture will almost certainly be a trip to Goodison Park to face Champions League-chasing Everton.
Crucially, four of Pelligrini’s side’s remaining six fixtures are at home, where they have been imperious this season. While it’s unlikely they’ll drop points from those matches against Sunderland, West Brom, Aston Villa and West Ham a trip to Selhurst Park on 27 April may be more challenging.
Should Liverpool fail to beat Chelsea then City’s fate is in their own hands, with a possible total of 88 points.
Remaining fixtures: Sunderland (H), West Brom (H), Crystal Palace (A), Everton (A), Aston Villa (H) and West Ham (H).
Everton and Arsenal
Neither side are genuine contenders for the title any longer, however, both could still mathematically come top, with Arsenal able to get to 79 points (two more than Liverpool’s current total) and Everton to 81.
More likely the pair will battle all the way for the fourth Champions League spot.
Everton’sremaining fixtures: Crystal Palace (H), Manchester United (H), Southampton (A), Manchester City (H) and Hull (A)
Arsenal’s remaining fixtures: West Ham (H), Hull (A), Newcastle (H), West Brom (H), Norwich (A) and Hull (H)
