When can Liverpool win the Premier League title?

Reds will secure the crown for the first time if they win their next two matches and they could even be confirmed as champions on 16 March

Leaders Liverpool moved a step closer to their first Premier League title at the weekend, beating AFC Bournemouth 2-1 at Anfield to move 25 points clear at the top.

Nearest challengers Manchester City lost 2-0 at Manchester United, before their home match against Arsenal was postponed, leaving them 25 points adrift with 30 left to play for.

So when can the Reds mathematically make sure they will be champions?

They can be confirmed as winners of the Premier League Trophy in their next match, a Merseyside derby at Everton on 16 March, if results go their way.

What needs to happen?

Even if Man City go on a winning run from here on in, Liverpool would claim the title if they triumph in their next two matches.

The second of those is at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday 21 March, and after that they travel to Man City on Sunday 5 April.

Liverpool's next matches

Jurgen Klopp's side could win the title on 16 March if Man City lose their next match against Burnley. Defeat would give Liverpool the chance to be confirmed as champions at the home of their local rivals if they win at Goodison Park on Monday.

Klopp's side are on course to set a new date for the earliest Premier League title triumph, currently held by Manchester United, who did so on 14 April, in 2000/01.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side had five matches to spare at the time, a feat Man City equalled when they won the 2017/18 crown on 15 April.

Liverpool can become the first club to do so with at least six matches in hand and they could do so with nine matches remaining.
