We won't have long to wait as they travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night.

If they manage to claim a fourth straight league win, they will restore their three-point advantage at the top of the table with both title rivals having two matches left to play.

In fact, City will play twice before Liverpool are in league action again, with an away fixture at seventh-placed West Ham United looming for the champions on Sunday.

Liverpool take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday before resuming their Premier League programme at Southampton on Tuesday, 17 May.

There will be midfield concerns for Klopp for the final matches of the campaign as Fabinho was forced off on the 30-minute mark at Villa Park because of injury.
