THE Premier League has enjoyed an action-packed month – with goals flying in all over the country.

But incredibly, the top-flight hasn’t seen a single game finish as a draw in a MONTH.

 Liverpool fans will hope Man City drop points at home to Spurs

Liverpool fans will hope Man City drop points at home to Spurs

Bournemouth’s thrilling 2-2 draw with Newcastle on March 16 was the last time two Prem teams shared the spoils.

Even then, that game only just finished that way, thanks to a memorable last-gasp volley from Toon ace Matt Ritchie.

Had that match finished as a win for the Cherries, you’d have to go back to March 10 to find the next-most-recent draw.

That day, Chelsea were held 1-1 at home to Wolves.

CITY SLIP?

Incredibly, according to the stats, only 17 per cent of all Premier League games have finished as draws this season.

Better yet, that is the fewest games drawn in the English top-flight since 1904-05 – 114 seasons ago.

While fans in England have either been left happy with a win or devastated by defeat, Liverpool supporters for starters will be praying Manchester City break that duck on Saturday.

The Reds sit just two points clear of City at the top of the Premier League table – with Pep Guardiola’s men having a game in hand.

But the Etihad giants host top-four hopefuls Tottenham in the weekend’s first kick-off.

Should Spurs get anything out of the game, Liverpool would well and truly be in the driving seat to break their league title drought, ongoing since 1990.

The Reds themselves travel to Cardiff on Sunday – the final game of the Premier League weekend.
