Man City vs Liverpool: Alan Shearer gives his 2019/20 Premier League title prediction

Man City vs Liverpool

Manchester City and Liverpool are arguably the top two teams in England at present.

Man City won the domestic treble last season, pipping Liverpool to the Premier League title by a single point.

Liverpool, on the other hand, reached their second successive Champions League final in June, this time beating Tottenham 2-1 to claim their 6th ever CL trophy.

The pair once again went head-to-head on Sunday in the Community Shield.

City came away with the win after Gabriel Jesus scored the winning penalty in a shootout.

Kyle Walker also cleared a shot off the line in the dying minutes of the game.

Shearer’s prediction

Ahead of the new Premier League campaign, Alan Shearer has made his title prediction.

Liverpool will kick off their campaign on Friday vs newly-promoted Norwich.

As for Man City, they will face West Ham on Saturday the 10th of August.

While City have won the title in the last two seasons, Shearer believes that Liverpool could just pip the Sky Blues to the league this time around:

“Without doubt, it will be Liverpool and Manchester City once again fighting it out for the title.

“I’m going to stick my neck out here and say Liverpool might just pip City to the league, providing they are more organised in defence than they looked at times on Sunday.

“However, I’m not sure either team will be able to better last season. We were very lucky to witness what we did with Liverpool being so good — and City being just one point better (98).” As quoted by the Mirror.
