If Burnley lose, and Liverpool beat Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, the Reds would face having their crown confirmed to play on Thursday, in the City playing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Nothing other than a City win – as long as they had beaten Burnley and Liverpool take the three points against Palace would see Jurgen Klopp’s side to become mathematically uncatchable.
Asked whether or not he would be watching tonight’s game on television, Van Dijk, said: “I’m not sure. Maybe. It may not be. I don’t know. I’ll see what I’m going to do tomorrow evening. “
Liverpool showed a lot of rust after three months of competition at Goodison Park, and Van Dijk told that there was another factor that did not help their performance.
He said after the match: “Obviously, everyone didn’t really know what to expect, the whole procedure prior to the game and how things will go.
“It was just good to be back out there and I think it is a fantastic game to play, your first game after so long, and I hope that we can keep the good things for Wednesday, and to do good to the house.
“We are a step closer. Of course, we wanted to win, we wanted to get the three points today, but we’re another step closer.
