Former Manchester City manager, Stuart Pearce, has predicted that Liverpool will win the Premier League ahead of City this season.
Liverpool have won their first two fixtures against West Ham and Crystal Palace.
Jurgen Klopp’s side finished fourth in the league last season and lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
But speaking on The Debate, Pearce believes Liverpool now have the experience and belief to go on and win their first Premier League title.
“I personally think they’ll win the league this year,” he said.
“I think it’s a two-horse race between them and City and they might just come out on top.
“I’m seeing a belief within the group that I probably haven’t seen before from the back end of last season. They’re hungry as well. They lost the Champions League final and the manner in the way they lost the final will hurt them.
“They didn’t win the league last year so I think they’ve got the hunger in their belly. They’re chasing that first title for however long and I think that hunger will get them over the line.”
