Liverpool will have to wait a little longer to lift the Premier League trophy after one point on yesterday at Godison Park. Liverpool’s inevitable title celebration will have to wait a a little bit longer. The Reds drew 0-0 with Everton on Sunday in the Merseyside derby, meaning that Jurgen Klopp’s team no longer can win the league on Monday. The Reds are 23 points clear of second-place Manchester City before City wraps up Matchday 30 on Monday vs. Burnley.
The result also means that the club might not be guaranteed the title with a win Wednesday against Crystal Palace. In order to win the league on Wednesday, Manchester City would have to drop points against Burnley. Relying on only their results, the Reds need four more points to win the title.
Klopp’s club produced just three shots on goal and might have been fortunate to earn the draw as Everton hit the post late. The reigning Champions League winners have now won just two of their last seven games in all competitions.
