Paul Merson names player who could decide the Premier League title race between Manchester City and Liverpool Fc
Former Arsenal forward Paul Merson believes Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne can prove to be the difference between Manchester City and Liverpool because he has what it takes to destroy Liverpool’s hopes of winning the Premier League title.
Paul merson believes that the Cityzens are still the favorites to retain their Premier League title despite the Reds closing the gap to just a point.
Merson also tips man city to go on to win the title ‘by double digits’ if they can beat Liverpool at the Etihad next month.
Merson wrote in his The Daily Star column:
“Manchester City win the league by double digits if they beat Liverpool at the Etihad, but it all depends on one player.
“If midfielder Kevin De Bruyne plays well until the end of the season, I think City win it comfortably because the Belgium international just knits everything together.”
“He makes everybody in the at City side play in my opinion. I think Pep Guardiola has a big role to play too with the team he picks.”
“I just still see City winning the championship. They are battering teams.
“It’s not like they are playing and not looking like scoring in a month of Sundays.
“They are absolutely dominating teams, camped out in their half creating chances and pinning them back.
“We’ve seen it too many times. They just have to make sure they don’t lose to Liverpool and then I don’t see who beats them
