Why Paul Ince is backing Liverpool FC to beat Man City to Premier League title
Man City currently have the upper hand despite trailing Liverpool by two points, with Pep Guardiola‘s men having one match in hand.
But Ince firmly believes that his former side will edge out City to the Premier League title next month.
The former midfielder’s confidence in Liverpool stems from the fact that Jurgen Klopp‘s team are finding ways to win ugly.
“A few weeks ago, I said that by this stage we’d know who’s going to win the Premier League because Man City and Liverpool would be dropping points,” Ince told Paddy Power News .
“But, the fact is, neither of them are. In 1993 when I won the league with Man United, there were defining moments in that season. The Fergie Time win over Sheffield Wednesday for example, we knew then that the title was ours.
“I sense that now with Liverpool. They’re not absolutely blowing teams away, they’re just having defining moments and decisions on their side. Against Everton when Jordan Pickford made that mistake, or against Fulham with the penalty, or Shane Long’s mistake last week. Things are happening for them, that makes me believe it’s their year.
“They have got to go on and win it now. Chelsea is a crucial game for them because of previous memories they’ve had in the title charge. I honestly believe Liverpool will win it this season. Everything is on their side.”
