When can Liverpool win the Premier League?

Liverpool need six more points to secure the Premier League title, which translates into two wins. Alternatively, a Liverpool win and a loss for Manchester City will be sufficient.

Should the Reds beat Everton in the Merseyside derby on June 21, they have a chance to win the title at Anfield on June 24 when they play Crystal Palace.

They could also be crowned champions on June 22 if they beat Everton and Man City lose their game against Burnley.

Manchester United's title-winning 2001 Premier League victory on April 14, 2001 with five games to spare is the fastest in the competition's history.

Due to postponements, Liverpool cannot now beat Manchester United's record, but they can still win the title with more games to spare.
