Manchester City maintained their Premier League title with a 4-0 win over Leeds United.
Liverpool need a one-point lead in the crucial clash with Manchester City after a 1-0 win over Newcastle United earlier on Saturday.
Manchester City struggled to separate the results they needed, with Rodr နှင့်guez and Nathan Ake turning in half before Gabriel Giuseppe and Fernandinho equalized.
Pep Guardiola's men need to win their remaining four games to win the Premier League title, while Leeds are in danger of relegation after relegation.
The visitors rested a number of players, including Kevin De Bruyne, ahead of Wednesday's trip to Real Madrid, with Rodrigo Morino likely to return early after investing in Joachim Sanslid.
But 13 minutes later, City took the lead when they met with a header from Phil Foden's left-wing free-kick.
Junior Firpo gave the home side their best opener in the first half, and Jesse Marsch's men lost Stuart Dallas to injury shortly before the start of the match.
In the 52nd minute, Raheem Sterling danced through the home defense and Jack Grealish from the top right corner of the box scored from close range, but Ake soon crossed the right wing corner and collided head-on with Ruben Dias.
78 minutes later, Jesus intercepted Foden's cross from Illan Meslier, and Fernandinho headed the ball over the bar 25 yards out to the bottom left corner, giving City the lead.
what do you mean? The capital holds fate in its hands.

The consistent threat is not related to the form of football that Guardiola's teams have calculated, but this season's defending champions have scored 18 goals more than any other team (excluding penalties) this season.
Leeds have conceded 18 goals in that situation, the worst record in the competition.
Foden came up when De Bruyne was gone.
Following De Bruyne's retirement, Guardiola moved Foden to the creative midfield, where the England international was rewarded for his goalscoring prowess for Rodrigo and Giuseppe.
Foden has scored 13 goals and created 11 assists in all competitions this season, doubling for both full-back and full-back campaigns.
What is the next one?
Guardiola's players travel to Leeds next Sunday after beating Real Madrid 4-3 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.
