Liverpool news: Ex-Man City boss claims Reds will win title ‘comfortably’ | Football | Sport


Liverpool will win the Premier League “comfortably” this season, claims former Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce.

Liverpool’s winning run in the league was ended by Manchester United on Sunday, one short of City’s all-time top-flight record of 18 consecutive victories.

Despite the 1-1 deaw, the Reds still have a six-point lead over Pep Guardiola’s side at the top of the table.

Pearce cannot see Liverpool finishing the campaign without tasting defeat but says they are already too far ahead of his old side City.

“After nine games they’ve got themselves a six-point lead,” Pearce said on talkSPORT.

“I think they’re clear favourites and I think they’ll win the Premier League this year, comfortably, by points.

“I’m not sure they’ll go unbeaten, but I can’t see them losing more than two games.

“Well potentially [those could be against Manchester City] but if you go into the game against your nearest rivals and you’ve got a six-point buffer, it will put real pressure on Manchester City to come out and play and that might just suit Liverpool, you never know.”

Meanwhile, United legend Roy Keane says the 1-1 draw on Sunday shows Liverpool have the mentality to pick up points despite not being at their best.

“I think both managers will be satisfied with the draw,” Keane said on Sky Sports.

“Pressure was building from Liverpool, obviously the Liverpool lads were speaking quite critically of themselves.

“But you have to give United a little bit of credit today.

“Obviously they got the first goal, they had to sit in, and there was just maybe one or two sloppy mistakes towards the end, United lacked a bit of composure, and when you’re 1-0 up there’s always a danger the opposition will score.

“Liverpool again, if they’re talking about winning league titles etc, you’re going to have to grind out results when you’re playing badly and that’s what they’ve done today.

“Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] will be pleased as well, they showed a good attitude, some good quality, but you always felt they needed that second goal.”
