“I wouldn’t say it’s 50/50” – Gary Neville reacts on Premier League title race between Liverpool and Manchester City
The former Manchester United right-back Gary Neville strongly believes Manchester City still have a slight edge over Liverpool in the premier league title race this season after they shared points with crystal palace on Monday night.
The Cityzens dropped two crucial points away to Crystal Palace. They only managed just four shots on target from their 18 attempts as the Eagles held them to a goalless stalemate at the Selhurst Park.
Manchester City are still the premier league leaders with 70 points from 29 matches. However, they are now just four points clear of second-placed Liverpool, with a game in hand.
Liverpool will travel to Emirates stadium on Wednesday and a win will take them to within a point of Manchester City.
Speaking after the match between the cityzens and Palace, Neville believes City still have a slight advantage. He told Sky Sports (as quoted by the Daily Mail):
“I wouldn’t say it’s 50/50, Man City do just edge it.
“But Liverpool have got five players up front who are an absolute joke.”
“Liverpool gain some confidence, I don’t think Manchester City drop too much confidence, there is a long way to go.
“You look at the fixtures and try to think, which ones are the difficult ones, and which are the ones they are going to pick up points in.”
“Then you throw the Champions League quarter-finals in, you don’t know what teams they’re going to draw, but you can imagine two big Champions League games in around that City and Liverpool game then you have a lot of games to contend with in terms of your squad.”
“The games that look simple, might be more difficult when you throw in these big European nights.” Neville concluded
