Danny Murphy: Why Liverpool fans are wrong about neutrals favouring Man City

Liverpool vs Man City

Liverpool have the chance to move above Man City in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Reds will need to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage to achieve that.

If that happens, Liverpool will open up a two point gap on the Sky Blues.

However Man City will have a game in hand over Jurgen Klopp’s men after Sunday’s fixture.

Danny Murphy: Why Liverpool fans are wrong

In his weekly column in the Mail on Sunday, Danny Murphy tells Liverpool fans that many of them have a wrong perception of the wider football community.

Murphy attempts to answer the following question: would neutrals prefer Man City or Liverpool to win the league?

Of course, many fans may answer that they really couldn’t care if their club isn’t in the title race.

Yet Murphy is of the opinion that Liverpool fans who believe the world is against them are mislead:

Many of their fans will feel the world wants them to lose out again, and that those neutrals prefer Manchester City.

I can understand why they would think like that — but I don’t agree. There is a lot more goodwill towards Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool up and down the country than they realise.

Support among neutrals will be split between City and Liverpool because both teams play an exciting, entertaining, positive brand of football. Either would be popular champions.
