Dietmar Hamann predicts Premier League title winner between Liverpool FC and Manchester City
Former premier league star and champions league winner Dietmar Hamann strongly believes Liverpool will beat his other old employers, Manchester City, to the Premier League title this season.
Both premier league giants are locked in an extreme battle for top-flight glory in the Premier League.
Only a point separates the two teams at the top of the table, with Man city currently in the lead.
The two teams will clash at the Etihad Stadium on April 10 in a potential title-decider.
Hamann, who played for the Reds between 1999-2006 and for City between 2006-2009, believes Liverpool will win the league title. He told the Anfield Watch;
“I think Liverpool will come out on top, but it’s a really exciting title race and there’s that game at the Etihad coming up.”
“It’s great for the fans and it’s great for the league. Last season, around Christmas we had a few teams in the running for the title before City put it to bed within two or three months.
“It’s good to have a title race and they’re the best two teams in Europe at the moment.”
“I think the quality he had from midfield is something not many players have nowadays, he could do everything.”
“Obviously, both teams have two more opponents to put aside, but they’ve dominated English football and the Premier League for four or five years now.
“We all remember that title race where Liverpool got to 97 points and still fell short of City, it’s just incredible.
“Any other year that wins you the title and I think it just shows how good the two teams are.”
