Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has predicted the winner of the Premier League with Liverpool and Manchester City battling it out at the top of the table.
Ferguson won 13 Premier League titles at Old Trafford before retiring in 2013. His former side have not lifted a league trophy since the Scot’s retirement, with Man City, Chelsea, and Leicester all picking up titles.
Liverpool have never won the Premier League, though they sit two points clear of Manchester City with just four games to go. Pep Guardiola’s side do have a game in hand, but that is against United next Wednesday.
And, according to former Premier League star Jonathan Walters, Ferguson believes his former club will get something out of that game, handing the title to Liverpool.
“I was chatting with Phil Bardsley and I’m gonna drop a name here, he was sat with Sir Alex Ferguson,” Walters told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Football Daily podcast.
“He sat with him and he thinks Liverpool are going win it. He thinks Liverpool because he thinks United will get something out of the City game.”
