Wayne Rooney has admitted that he would rather Manchester City win the Premier League title than Liverpool FC.

The Reds are in pole position to win the Premier League crown following their 2-1 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage last time out.

Liverpool FC are two points ahead of Manchester City thanks to their dramatic victory over the Cottagers.

Manchester City will move a point clear of Liverpool FC in the Premier League table if Pep Guardiola’s side can win their game in hand.

Liverpool FC have two tricky fixtures remaining in the title race, including home clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday 31 March.

Chelsea FC will also make the trip to Merseyside before the conclusion of the Premier League season.

Manchester City, on the other hand, are looking to retain the Premier League crown for the first time in their history.

Former Manchester United striker Rooney has admitted that he doesn’t want Liverpool FC to win the Premier League title.

“I hope Man City get over the line before Liverpool,” Rooney told talkSPORT.

“I couldn’t bear to see them win it, it would be a nightmare for any Evertonian.

“I remember in 2005 they won the Champions League and they’re still talking about it now so it would be another 10 or 15 years of that!”

Liverpool FC finished in second place behind Manchester United in the Premier League title race in 2009.

The Reds have only lost to Manchester City in the Premier League this season when Klopp’s side lost 2-1 at The Etihad.

Liverpool FC have finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
