So it all comes down to this: It’s over to you, Stevie

Liverpool had to do their bit in beating Southampton to make sure the Premier League title race went down to the last day.

Jurgen Klopp picked a rotated side with the likes of Takumi Minamino getting the nod for his first start of the season in the league and Harvey Elliot getting his first league start since September.

There was no Virgil Van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara, Luis Diaz, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

With nine changes made there was a sense of nervousness amongst supporters in a must-win game to keep any title hopes alive.

Those nerves were not erased when Nathan Redmond fired Southampton into the lead for the game that was dubbed as their Champions League final by manager Ralph Hassenhuttl.

However the travelling Reds did not need to worry as to a man they were exceptional and the much better side.

Takumi Minamino scored to equalise before the interval and in the second half Joel Matip inadvertently headed the winner past Alex McCarthy as the ball hit the Cameroonian more than anything.

So now Liverpool are just two points behind Manchester City who could have all but wrapped it up against West Ham but Riyad Mahrez penalty was saved which kept Liverpool in with a shout just about.

Pep Guardiola’s side will welcome Aston Villa to The Etihad whilst Jurgen Klopp will welcome Wolves to Anfield.

It is a repeat of the 2019 final day.

Manchester City have to drop points whilst Liverpool have to win to be crowned champions, as simple as that.

No goal difference nonsense.

Steven Gerrard, one of the greatest to ever play for Liverpool yet he never won the league, will manage Aston Villa in a hope he can gift Liverpool the title.

Phillipe Coutinho and Danny Ings former Liverpool players who were very much liked whilst at the club can also provide a big helping hand.

No pressure then lads.

Whatever happens, what a season this has been from Liverpool and it is all down to the greatness of Jurgen Klopp.

One of the best to ever manage Liverpool football club, no wonder the fans sing about how they are in love with him.
