After the dust had settled following Liverpool's postponed trip to Old Trafford and Manchester United's heated fan protests, one thing becomes clear.

Boasting a seven-point advantage over Liverpool, who now hold a game in hand, for that final Champions League place, Thomas Tuchel's side are in the driving seat to qualify for Europe's elite competition next year.

Had the Reds beaten Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side to keep their faint hopes of finishing in the top four alive, Man City would have been crowned champions and been left free to concentrate on their Champions League exploits as a result.

And with Liverpool's postponed game against Manchester United ensuring Chelsea's trip to the Etihad is not a dead-rubber for Man City, the pressure remains firmly on the Blues as Klopp's men look to pounce on any potential slip-up in the race for fourth.

But if ever a team had a chance to topple City it would be in a dead-rubber off the back of a Champions League semi-final second leg with the title already won.

Of course, Chelsea have their own Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid to prepare for before they travel to the Etihad, and have already booked their place in the FA Cup final.

Dare we say it, not playing this weekend has actually done Jurgen Klopp's men a favour.
