Rafa Benitez could have a big say if Liverpool win the Premier League on Sunday – Our View

Liverpool could win their second Premier League title this Sunday, although it all depends on Aston Villa and Manchester City.

Steven Gerrard needs to take points from Pep Guardiola while Jurgen Klopp needs to make sure he beat Wolves if the Reds are to win the Premier League.

Those three aren’t the only managers who might have a say in the matter, however.

What’s the matter?

Well, in a roundabout way, Rafa Benitez could also play a big part in the Premier League title race this Sunday.

Before being sacked by Everton in January, the Spaniard fell out with Lucas Digne – arguably the best player at Goodison Park.

Eventually, Benitez sold the Frenchman to Aston Villa, where he will now face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Now, if Digne scores – or assists – the goal that deprives Manchester City of points, it would be a gift from Benitez to Liverpool, even 12 years after the day he left Anfield.

Of course, one could argue that this is an unrealistic scenario given that Digne is a left-back after all.

However, the 28-year-old is very aggressive and also has excellent technical skills that make him a threat from free-kicks.

So anything is possible this Sunday in Manchester.

Rafa Benitez could improve Liverpool’s legacy

Benitez is already loved at Liverpool, although he could add even more to his reputation at Anfield depending on what happens this Sunday.

Title race aside, Everton could face relegation to the Championship which would be largely Benitez’s fault.

Before being replaced by Frank Lampard, the 62-year-old won by a narrow margin five from his 19 Premier League games responsible for the toffees, pickup 19 points total.

If Benitez is involved in a season that sees Liverpool win the Premier League and their bitter rivals relegated, it would certainly make the Spaniard even more popular at Anfield.

Only time will tell what happens on Sunday, although it’s sure to be a thrilling Premier League final.
