Liverpool find themselves eight points clear at the top of the Premier League after eight matches following their 17th consecutive win in the Premier League against Leicester City on Saturday.
The Reds have now lost only once in the top-flight since May of last year and currently look great value to go the distance this time out.
Manchester City’s collapse this season has, as expected, been well-documented. The Citizens fell to a shock defeat against Norwich City last month and were comfortably beaten 2-0 by Wolves on Sunday.
Pep Guardiola’s men now find themselves eight points behind Jurgen Klopp’s dominant outfit at this early stage of the campaign, with it looking obvious that injuries to key players such as Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte have had an impact.
And Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville – lifelong servant to Liverpool’s fierce rivals Manchester United – is now tipping Klopp’s side to go all the way.
“I don’t think they can lose it from here,” said Neville in the Sky Sports studio on Sunday. “Liverpool are definitely big favourites, but if [Virgil] Van Dijk gets injured, or [Mohamed] Salah gets injured it can change.”
There is still thirty games to go in the Premier League, and although eight points is a sizeable gap at the top, Liverpool did blow that very same advantage last season and lost out on the title to City.
The Reds are in the ascendency – that much is obvious – but given last term’s collapse, it would surely be crazy to rule out Manchester City with plenty still to play for.
