 Exclusive: When Manchester City can win the Premier League title after Man United vs Liverpool is postponed


Manchester City could have reclaimed the Premier League title on Sunday – before protests at Old Trafford put a hold on that possibility.

Having eased past Crystal Palace 2-0 on Saturday, City would have clinched the top-flight crown if Liverpool had have beaten Manchester United 24 hours later.

But United vs Liverpool was called off by the Premier League after protests against the home side’s owners turned ugly and a group of fans broke into the stadium.

Premier League leaders Man City could now wrap up the title this week

When can Man City win the title?

City can now be crowned champions on Saturday, May 8.

Pep Guardiola’s side are 13 points ahead of second-place United and have four games left to play of the season, while their neighbours have five games remaining.

City simply need to claim two more points to clinch the title and a win against Chelsea at the Etihad on Saturday in the 5.30pm kick-off will wrap things up.

Should they draw or lose, they could still win it this weekend if United do not better their result at Aston Villa on Sunday.
