Rio Ferdinand said on his Youtube channel that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will not be able to catch Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table this season.
The former Manchester United defender believes Manchester City are too good at the moment, and doesn’t think Liverpool will be able to catch up with them.
Both Liverpool and City won the Premier League last weekend.
City, defending champions, are at the top in the Premier League table at the moment with 63 points from 25 games, while Liverpool are second with 54 points from 24 games.
Ferdinand said on his Youtube channel when asked if the title race was over: “In terms of points it’s not over, but I just think City look too comfortable in their games. The city looks like total control all the time.
Could Liverpool catch Manchester City?
In our opinion, Liverpool can certainly catch up with Manchester City.
Yes, City are nine points clear at the top of the table, but Liverpool are one game short.
If Liverpool win and the Citizens lose a game, then that’s the game.
In our view, the Premier League title race is far from over.
Now, of course, we know City are winning games easily at the moment, but they have lost this season which means they can be beaten.
Liverpool, however, must keep winning and cannot afford any mistakes.
