Gary Neville predicts where Liverpool FC, Tottenham will finish in title race
The Man United legend has told Liverpool FC and Tottenham to forget about winning the Premier League title
Gary Neville has ruled out Liverpool or Totteham Hotspur winning the Premier League title this season.
The Merseyside outfit lost 4-1 to Spurs at Wembley earlier this month to leave Jurgen Klopp’s side 12 points behind current Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Liverpool ended a three-game winless run on Saturday afternoon after a 3-1 victory over promoted side Huddersfield Town thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum.
Tottenham, on the other hand, made the trip to Old Trafford looking to cut Manchester City’s lead to two points ahead of the Citizens’ clash against West Bromwich Albion.
Spurs lost 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford after Anthony Martial scored an 81st-minute winner to secure three points for Jose Mourinho’s men.
The north London side are eight points behind Manchester City as Tottenham look to win their first Premier League title.
Former Manchester United defender Neville believes Liverpool and Tottenham aren’t ready to win the top-flight crown.
“Liverpool and Tottenham would love to win the league, they’re just not quite there,” Neville told Sky Sports.
Tottenham finished in second place in the Premier League table last season after finishing seven points behind eventual champions Chelsea.
Liverpool have never won the Premier League crown but the Reds finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
