James Milner of Liverpool FC is looking up.  The 2018/19 title race is very much on.  Bet on it! Liverpool's chances of winning the English Premier League this season almost went up in smoke on Sunday against Tottenham.

That was, of course, until Tottenham decided to keep Liverpool in the race after surrendering an own goal.

A draw for Liverpool on Sunday would have given them the same number of points as Man City, though Man City still has a game in hand. To make matters worse for Liverpool, Man City has a 7 goal edge in terms of goal differential, so assuming Man City beats Cardiff City on Wednesday, this would have meant that Liverpool would have had to have made up 4 points on Man City through the rest of the season.

Given how Man City is currently playing, this would have been next to impossible.

Instead, Liverpool pulled out the small miracle on Sunday, beating Tottenham 2-1 to stay firmly in the hunt.

Here are the current betting odds to win the EPL as of this moment:

Man City, 1.44
Liverpool, 2.75

Teams like Tottenham, Man United and Arsenal are all way back of the pack and are just fighting for Champions League spots at this point. These teams have no chance of catching up.

To make matters worse for Liverpool, Man City has a fairly easy schedule throughout the remainder of the season.

Man City still has games left against the likes of Cardiff City, Crystal Palace, Burnley FC, Leicester City and Brighton.

While Liverpool has a fairly easy schedule as well, they have to try and make up ground on Man City. With Man City playing so well, Liverpool will likely have to win all of their remaining games to have a chance of catching them.

Can Liverpool pull this off or will Man City take down another league title?
