The Reds do no have the title, a crown they have been craving for 24 years, in their hands anymore; they need City to drop not just two points, but all three to have any chance of realistically becoming the new Premier League champions.
Two matches, and two disappointing results – against Chelsea and CrystalPalace – have derailed Liverpool's dream season, and Brendan Rodgers will be keen to see his side finish the campaign on a high, even if it means only finishing in second.
"We have to keep doing our job, which is get the win," Rodgers said. "It will be interesting if we make one of our quick starts and get up in the game.
"Then there'll be a point in the game when we're up and they're drawing.
"At Chelsea there was a game towards the end of the season -- and it's not nice either -- when you know that there's another team playing that can win, and that you have to not lose.
"It's uncomfortable. It was a nervy one and you could sense it, the crowd, the players. Even though it was deemed it was going to happen, there was nervousness there.
Rodgers is hopeful one of the Liverpool old boys can do his former side a favour on Sunday. "It's not over by any stretch of the imagination, and West Ham are a really good defensive unit," he added. "They went to Tottenham and won 3-0.
"Andy Carroll can score goals, they've got other players who can score goals. But we can only do our job and keep the pressure on.
"One of the first things I said to the players when I came in here was from the first day of preseason until the final whistle goes at the last game of the season you'll be intensely worked, and then you can go away and reflect when the season's over. I remind them of that all the time.
"This is why the training this week has been as intense as in preseason. And why it will go right to the wire."
