Nine grains of sand has proven to be the cruellest EPL title decider in memory as 11mm emerged as the number that will haunt Liverpool. It was the tightest, greatest title race in English Premier League history. A battle of sheer will, between two teams who simply refused to give way. The tiny margin between champion and runner-up has never been so cruel, The Sun reports. A season of 38 games, spread over 41 weeks, featuring 44 players between them and a combined tally of 184 goals. All decided by a matter of 40mm. An inch and a half. Every millimetre counts when you’re fighting for a share of the $139 million that gets carved up between the top two finishers in the EPL title race. In the case of this season, 11mm was worth more than $3.5 million in prize money as Manchester City locked down the winner’s cheque of $71 million and Liverpool settled for $68 million. *** LISTEN!

A matter of 11mm. To the naked eye, it looked like a catastrophic, chaotic, devastating and almost inconceivable defensive blunder. But in the end it was a salvation act that had even more impact than it seemed at the time. The clash between the top two teams on January 3 was just 17 minutes in when Liverpool’s Sadio Mane streaked in behind the City defence and prodded past goalkeeper Ederson, only to see the ball rebound off the foot of the post. City defender John Stones, wrong-footed by the pace of the ball, panicked, whacking his attempted clearance against the face of the retreating keeper as the Brazilian reached out to grab it. The ball looped back towards goal, seemingly headed for the net, before Stones, in desperation, stretched out every piece of stitching on his right boot to hook away.John Stones' effort ended up being the defining title moment.Source:Twitter A Premier League football is 22cm across. According to the Goal Decision System, 21.9cm of the ball had crossed the line.
