John Barnes predicts where Liverpool FC and Man City will finish
John Barnes is tipping Liverpool FC to win the Premier League title ahead of Man City this season
John Barnes is tipping Liverpool FC to win the Premier League title ahead of Manchester City this season.
The Reds are aiming to go one step further than they did last season when they ended up just a single point behind Pep Guardiola’s men in the top flight table.
Liverpool FC have made a brilliant start to the new campaign and they currently sit at the top of the Premier League table and two points ahead of Manchester City after four games.
The Merseyside outfit have recorded back to back victories against Norwich, Southampton, Arsenal and Burnley to establish themselves as the only team in the division to have won all four of their openers.
Manchester City are just two points behind them however, with the stage set for an enthralling title race this season.
And Liverpool FC legend Barnes seems confident that the Reds will have what it takes to go all the way this term under Jurgen Klopp.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports News, Barnes said: “Last season, as well as Liverpool were playing right to the end, I felt that Manchester City would win the league.
“This year I think Liverpool will win the league. They have this determination, this drive, this confidence now that they’ve won a trophy with Jurgen Klopp.
“What Klopp has instilled into this team is no excuses. So when teams then give themselves excuses – because players are injured or they’ve just come back late – they will drop points because they can drop points.
“Klopp won’t and he’s instilled that into the team and the fans. The players know, regardless of whether they’re playing, there are no excuses not to perform. That is Liverpool’s strength.”
Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Newcastle United at Anfield.
The Reds will then turn their attentions towards their Champions League opener away to Napoli.
