Ian Wright believes Liverpool FC will win the Premier League title with a point to spare.

The Reds signed off for the international break with a two-point lead over their bitter rivals Manchester City.

Liverpool FC were 2-1 winners against Fulham thanks to James Milner’s late winner from the penalty spot to reclaim top spot.

However, Pep Guardiola’s side have played one game less than the Premier League leaders to leave their title destiny in their own hands.

Manchester City will make up their game in hand when they travel to bitter rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday 24 April.

Retired England international Wright has predicted the result in each of Liverpool FC and Manchester City’s remaining Premier League fixtures.

And the Arsenal legend has tipped Liverpool FC to win their first Premier League title by a narrow points margin.

“One point, they’ve done it by one point!” Wright told Premier League Productions, as quoted by the Daily Express.

“Well that’s what I’m hoping [that it goes down to the last day].

“I’m really pleased with that because I genuinely believe Tottenham will draw against both of them.

“And I think the Manchester derby at that stage of the season is going to be so intense.

“I can see maybe a draw for Manchester City there as well at United.

“Even just seeing with the champions mark makes me really excited.

“You know my predictions are not a million miles away, I get a lot of correspondence saying ‘you were right, you were right’.

“I hope I’m right, but I can’t see Man City losing too many, I just can’t see them losing too many.

“This is the pressure that both of them are under right now, with massive games in and around it.”

Liverpool FC finished behind Manchester City in the 2013-14 Premier League title race after squandering their advantage with two games to go.

The Reds haven’t won the Premier League title but have finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will take on Portuguese outfit FC Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals next month.

Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev last season.
