Matt Le Tissier is backing Manchester City to pip Liverpool FC to the Premier League title this season – and says Manchester United will finish fourth.

Liverpool FC are looking to win the Premier League title this season as they search for their first major trophy under Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds have the chance to move top of the table when they take on Fulham away from home on Sunday, with Manchester City in FA Cup action this weekend.

Klopp’s side currently sit a point behind the leaders with eight games left to play as they look to try and secure their first major trophy.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently embroiled in a race to finish in the top four this season, with the Red Devils in fifth place in the table and two points behind Arsenal.

However, former Southampton star Le Tissier feels that the Red Devils will break back into the top four this term, and he is also tipping Manchester City to beat Liverpool FC to the title.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Le Tissier said: “I have stuck with Manchester City all the way through, even when they were seven points behind.

“They have a stronger squad with eight games to go and less troubling games ahead. Liverpool will chase them down and it will be close, closer than I expected at the start of the season – it may even go down to the last game of the season but I think City will just pip it.

“In third place, I am going to go with Spurs. I think they have had a little bit of a blip. The fact they are out of the title race could take a little bit of pressure off them. They got beaten by Southampton but they should have been out of sight by half-time.

“As long as they don’t let it affect their confidence, they should be able to stick in third despite tough away games at Liverpool and Man City.”

Asked to pick who will finish fourth, he continued: “Fourth is probably the toughest to pick at the moment. Chelsea have the games in hand so you could probably throw a blanket over them when they are done with those. I think I may go with Manchester United to finish fourth.

“Arsenal have the easier run-in but they have the tendency to slip up against the teams that they have to face.

“I am going to go Arsenal to finish fifth as their fixtures are slightly easier than Chelsea’s. Chelsea still have some tough away games at Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United.”

Liverpool FC came close to winning a trophy last season but they ended up losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League final back in May.
