Vincent Kompany Delivers An Insightful Prediction About Manchester City And Liverpool’s Premier League Title Race. The Premier League title race between Manchester City and Liverpool has been amazing this season, with only one point separating the two teams at the moment.
With a one-point lead, former City defender Vincent Kompany believes his former side will win, however, he believes either team deserves to win the title in May. The Belgian told reporters, as quoted by Manchester Evening New:
“Obviously, I’m biased, so I’m going to say City but I think most importantly, City have been in this position before plenty of times. I don’t think Liverpool will drop points but I don’t think City will drop points and I think it will be another race where at the end, we’re going to say both teams deserve to win. One point may be too much, I hope City do it.”
Manchester City currently has the ball in their hands, due to a one-point lead over Liverpool. To win the league, the Cityzens merely need to win their final five matches.
Pep Guardiola does not need to speak much to his players, according to Vincent Kompany. The Belgian feels that the Etihad Stadium’s current crop of players has enough expertise to calm their worries and complete the task in the coming weeks.
“I think he [Guardiola] doesn’t need to tell the players too much. Having experienced it, you focus on each game. You will try and find the right tone of voice; the right message depending on what he’s feeling for that game.” He continued.
“I think he knows that he can trust the players. These guys know what they have to do and if they really focus and do everything, they have to do it every single day of the week. In general, the chances are better for them to win than the other team.” He added.
Manchester City’s title defence will begin this weekend with a match against Watford. In their next five games, the Cityzens will face Leeds United, Newcastle United, West Ham United, Aston Villa, and Wolves.
Elsewhere, Liverpool faces Everton in a crucial derby match on Sunday. In their next five games, they will face Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Southampton, and Wolves.
