Will Liverpool win the Premier League in the same way as Arsenal?

Liverpool will probably win the Premier League in the same way as Arsenal’s invincible, ie crowned on the field the most hated opponent.

Liverpool can humiliate rivals Everton by winning the Premier League title on their opponents’ ground next month when the tournament returns.

The two teams will meet in the Merseyside derby on June 19, 20 or 21. At that time, they knew the result of the early match between Man City and Arsenal (June 17) so a victory against Everton could be worth the championship.

Liverpool are creating a gap of 25 points compared to defending champion Man City. Winning 27/29 matches this season (1 draw, 1 loss) means that Jurgen Klopp’s teachers and students need only 6 points from the remaining 9 rounds to be awarded the trophy.

If Man City lose to Arsenal on June 17, Liverpool will be confirmed as the champion on the condition of defeating the team with the city of Everton only a few days later.

In the event that this scenario occurs, Liverpool will join the list of the few clubs lucky to be crowned before their most hated opponent.

Previously, Arsenal was crowned at both Manchester’s Old Trafford and Tottenham’s While Hart Lane; In Scotland, Rangers successfully defended the championship at Celtic Park in 1999. 

1989 – Arsenal win at Anfield

Considered to be one of the most dramatic season finals in history, Arsenal entered the game with the task of winning with a goal of 2 or more goals to win.

It was a difficult task as defending champion Liverpool had won 17 of the previous 18 matches in all competitions. They have not lost 2 goals at Anfield since February 1986.

There was no goal in the first half but the drama increased after Alan Smith opened the scoring in the 52nd minute, giving the visitors hope.

Finally, the injury-time goal from Michael Thomas made Arsenal’s dream of championship a reality. 

2002 – Arsenal win at Old Trafford

Arsenal made their trip to Old Trafford in the penultimate round of the 2001/02 season in hopes of completing a historic double after winning the FA Cup.

Despite the absence of Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Tony Adams on May 8, 2002, Wenger’s team managed to defend the championship after Sylvain Wiltord won.

“Gunners” created a 7 point gap with MU and ended the campaign with 13 consecutive victories when they were unbeaten at home and scored in all 38 matches.

2004 – Arsenal win at White Hart Lane

April 25, 2004 marks the day Arsenal were “unbeatable” making history by winning the Premier League at White Hart Lane of their north London rivals.

Tottenham held Arsenal 2-2 with a late equalizer from Robbie Keane, but one point was enough for the “Gunners” to be crowned.
