Jurgen Klopp's side are significant underdogs to overhaul the reigning champions' one-point advantage on the final round of the top-flight campaign

Liverpool landed a big priced comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Reds won 4-0 in the second leg of their semi-final clash, a score line that bet365 priced at 50/1 (51.0) before the action got underway at Anfield and 18/1 (19.0) to qualify,

On Sunday Jurgen Klopp's men will go in search of an elusive Premier League title, with the side sitting one point behind leaders Manchester City going into the final day of the season.

The Merseyside club are sizeable underdogs to leapfrog Pep Guardiola's men though, with bet365 making Liverpool 6/1 (7.0) to beat City to the Premier League title. The same firm are 1/8 (1.12) about the Citizens retaining their domestic crown.

In that situation a bettor would have to place £8 on Manchester City to generate a £1 profit.

Those prices suggest that while Liverpool are unlikely to win their first league title since 1990, it wouldn't be as much of an upset as their midweek victory over Barca.

“The odds are stacked against Liverpool lifting their first ever Premier League trophy, but after the week they’ve had, they’ll believe that anything is possible," said bet365's Steve Freeth.

In order to overhaul the leaders, Klopp's men will need to beat Wolves and hope that City drop points against Brighton. Victory is almost essential for Liverpool as only a highly unlikely other outcome will be enough to see the two-point swing required for the teams to swap places.

Due to an inferior goal difference, a draw at Anfield combined with a 5-0 or heavier defeat for City at the Amex Stadium would be enough to see the Reds end the campaign in top spot. A win that big for Brighton trades at around 200/1 (201.0).

Both contenders are red-hot favourites to win their respective matches.

Liverpool are 3/10 (1.30) to win a ninth consecutive league match and keep their hopes of a title turnaround alive.

Manchester City are even shorter in the betting at 1/6 (1.17) to get the better of Brighton at the Amex Stadium. The Seagulls are 18/1 (19.0) to win and a draw is available at 15/2 (8.50).
