The race to the Premier League title will go down to the last day of the season. Liverpool moves to 89 points, one less than league-leader Manchester City. Mathematically, the possibility to win the league is still there and the hunt for the historical quadruple is on.
Liverpool ensured the Premier League title race will go to the final day of the season by coming from behind to beat Southampton 2-1 at St Mary’s.
Joel Matip’s crucial second-half winner moved the Reds a single point behind leaders Manchester City to set up a finale on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s men knew they had to be victorious on the south coast to remain in contention to become top-flight champions for only the second time in 32 years and were stunned by Nathan Redmond’s superb solo opener.
But the much-changed visitors controlled proceedings for almost the entire evening and levelled through former Saints loanee Takumi Minamino before Matip completed the turnaround with the aid of a deflection off Kyle Walker-Peters.
The Reds, who remain in contention for an unprecedented quadruple, will welcome Wolves to Anfield in five days’ time, hoping Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa can do them a major favour away to City.
