Pundit Michael Owen has given his verdict on the 2021-22 Premier League title race.
With that being the case, the Citizens possess a three-point lead over second-placed Liverpool. Both sides only have two top-flight games remaining this season.
Therefore, Owen believes that Pep Guardiola's side will clinch the title.
“Not just winning the game, but the goal difference is now becoming an issue (+72 to +65 in Manchester City's favour).
“I fancy Liverpool to win both of their games, I must admit – listen, Manchester City could drop points against West Ham United. But I can’t see them dropping points to both (West Ham United and Aston Villa).
Anfield Watch Verdict
We do agree with Owen. We can only see Manchester City winning the title now.
Liverpool have been very good in the league this season, but they have drawn far too many games. The Reds have dropped points in 10 fixtures (eight draws and two losses).
Unfortunately, when you are up against a machine like Pep Guardiola's side, you have very little room for error.
We are looking forward to the final phase of the campaign.
