Third vs first: Man City Vs Liverpool
The last match of round 18 of the English Premier League will see third placed Manchester City host league leaders Liverpool.
By the time this match is played the teams positions could have changed but a win for Liverpool will see them restored to the top of the table.
A win for the home team will see them in second or first if Arsenal does not get all three points in its match against West Ham.
Man City has scored a staggering 35 goals at home and in their last home match they put six past Arsenal.
In Liverpools last home match they won 5-nil against Tottenham Hotspurs and after that match the Spurs head coach was sacked.
Here is some stats for the two teams so far this season:

I think this is the match that Suarez has to show how world class he is.
Win this and Liverpool are cruising away but losing will not be the end of the world. Many teams will lose to City at Etihad.
So Liverpool lost to Man City and the question can they now win against Chelsea on Sunday?
