If they do, and the Reds beat Wolves in their last game, Liverpool will lift the Premier League trophy for the first time in their history.
City are a formidable force at home while Brighton could be forgiven for having their minds elsewhere having already secured survival.
However, a formula devised by stats geeks, which takes into account every match of the season so far, thinks all is not lost.
The first prediction, it must be said, is not great – for stats say it’s 88.8 per cent likely that City beat Leicester. A draw is a 7.8 per cent possibility and the Foxes to win is seen as 3.3 per cent.
So while that may not make good reading, the omens are better for desperate Kopites on Sunday.
It’s 34.8 per cent likely that Brighton will not lose against Pep Guardiola’s men – 9.7 per cent for a Brighton win and 25.1 per cent a draw.
While a City win remains favourite – at 65.2 per cent – the stats still say Liverpool have got a fighting chance of coming out on top.
If City do slip up, Liverpool will have to beat Wolves to wrap it up. That, say the stats, is 87.3 per cent likely to happen.
