Beat Man City and title is Liverpool’s, declares former defender
Steve Nicol believes that Liverpool will win the Premier League this season if they beat Manchester City at Anfield
Liverpool will win the Premier League this season if they can beat Manchester City at Anfield this month, according to Steve Nicol.
The Reds, who are currently top of the table, travel to Anfield on 13 April in what is set to be a crunch clash in the title race.
If they beat Manchester City at home, then they will win it
And former Liverpool defender Nicol feels that the showdown with Manuel Pellegrini’s men will decide the destination of the top-flight trophy this season.
“The way the team’s playing is an absolute delight to watch,” Nicol told talkSPORT.
“Liverpool’s consistency, the way they have been playing, has been better than Manchester City. This Liverpool side has been as good a side to watch as I can remember.
“I think the key is Manchester City at home. If they beat Manchester City at home, then they will win it. That game is huge. It is going to be the deciding game.”
