Liverpool took a point at Everton on Sunday to move one step closer to winning the Premier League trophy.

So when will that happen?

Not Monday, when Man City hosts Burnley. In fact, not until at least Wednesday, when Crystal Palace visits Liverpool at Anfield.

That still seems a bit soon, given Burnley’s injury history and Man City shaking the rust off last week while also holding a superior squad to the visiting Clarets.

We mean, Virgil van Dijk hasn’t even decided whether he’s watching Man City and Burnley on Monday.

The Reds now have to gain five points, have City drop five points, or have some combination of the two.

That’s most certainly going to happen, but when? Here are the next six Premier League matches involving the two sides.

Keep in mind that Man City has an extra match days before Liverpool visits the Etihad, with the Reds falling out of the FA Cup. Man City visits Newcastle on June 28.

It’s very difficult to see the title race running any further than July 5.

Monday: Man City v. Burnley, 3 p.m. ET
Wednesday: Liverpool v. Palace, 3:15 p.m. ET
Thursday: Chelsea v. Man City, 3:15 p.m. ET
July 2: Man City v. Liverpool, 3:15 p.m. ET
July 5: Liverpool v. Aston Villa, 11:30 a.m. ET
July 5: Southampton v. Man City, 2 p.m. ET
