Leicester might be the side most likely to take points off Manchester City in the final three games of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

The most frustrating thing in football is depending on another team to do you a favour.

Liverpool need one of Burnley, Leicester or Brighton to take points off Man City in order to win the Premier League this season.

Given that City have lost just one game in their last 16 outings, winning the other 15, it is almost certain that they will win their remaining three.

There are a lot of fans that think Burnley will be the side to gift the Reds the upper hand in the title race.

Sean Dyche’s side held Chelsea to a 2-2 draw and won their three league games leading up to their trip to Stamford Bridge.


There is also an omen that suggests that Burnley will beat City as they have beaten every reigning champion in the league since being promoted from the Championship.

But I think it will be Leicester who do the deed. If the Foxes do hand Liverpool the Premier League title there will be an element of poetic justice to it.

Brendan Rodgers, now in charge of the 2016 Premier League champions, could win the Reds the title just five years after failing to do so himself while he was Anfield boss.

If the Northern Irishman were to aid Liverpool’s 2019 title bid he will certainly be forgiven for his failings while he was in the Kop hot seat.

Leicester could be the side to beat City and have done so already this season, beating the Citizens 2-1 in December at the King Power stadium.

Rodgers’ charges have won five of their last eight Premier League games but have lost and drawn their last two.

Can the former Liverpool man take a point away from the Etihad this season?
