Stan Collymore chooses the two games that will decide the offer for the title of Liverpool

Liverpool were excellent at handling Chelsea on Sunday and, like everyone else with an affinity with the club, I'm excited to see where this season ends.

The title of the Premier League is in the hands of Manchester City and a part of me thought I might blink at the Crystal Palace at the beginning of the day, but it was not like that.

The outstanding games for Jurgen Klopp's men are now their two final games, against Newcastle and Wolves in May.

There will be one or two people hoping that Rafa Benitez, the man who drove Liverpool to the glory of the Champions League, will rest a couple of his Toon players for the penultimate game and hear a buzzing "You'll never walk alone" in your way to El dugout in the park of st james.

Liverpool was impressive on Sunday, but their last two games are big now.

But he is the consummate professional and he will want to win that game as much as anyone.

Then it will be the Wolves at home and the children of Nuno Espirito Santo would love to be the team that stopped Liverpool to win the title.

I also wonder if players like Ruben Neves could see the game as a real opportunity to get in the window.

There is still a lot of work to be done if my old club is going to finish its 29 year wait for the title.

Son shined last week, now it's the turn of the city

I'm sorry Spurs, the city is still too strong

Although Tottenham have a 1-0 lead over Manchester City in the second stage tomorrow, Pep Guardiola's men are my favorites in the Champions League.

Do not get me wrong, the Spurs have a team capable of knocking them out and they can do it by pressing high and with audacity, but I still like the city to change the tie.

And I saw nothing of Barcelona against Manchester United last week that made me think that City or Liverpool could not beat them.

Brighton owes his fans and his manager a great performance.

Great night for Brighton

For a team near the bottom of the table, but has not yet been relegated, conceding five goals at this time of the season is almost unforgivable.

So the Brighton players must look good after their hammering by Bournemouth and before tonight's clash with Cardiff.

This should be the time of the season when you say: "Let's stay in this division."

There should be a lot of saber noises in the locker room before the match, a lot of shouting and emotion, and good tactical planning.

They owe their manager, Chris Hughton, and his supporters a great performance at the Amex tonight.

The outbreak of racism is increasingly worrisome.

Do not shoot the messenger

What disappointed me the most about the situation with West Ham fans singing anti-Semitic songs on a train was the number of followers of Hammers who then mistreated me on Twitter for having the audacity to highlight it.

People are more concerned about the elimination of their clubs now than because of racism, and that is a worrying low point.
