Liverpool news: Manchester City will end Reds’ unbeaten run and Pep Guardiola’s side will win Premier League, Tony Cascarino says

Manchester City will beat Liverpool and go on to win the Premier League, former Chelsea forward Tony Cascarino has claimed.

Cascarino backed Pep Guardiola’s side to retain their title at the beginning of the season, and he remains behind City despite their recent slip-ups.

Two defeats in their last three league matches leave the Etihad club four points behind Liverpool, who are still unbeaten heading into the midway matches of the campaign on Boxing Day.

Andros Townsend scored a stunning goal as Crystal Palace shocked City last time out

While losing to Chelsea is fully acceptable, City’s shock home defeat to Crystal Palace raised real questions about their title credentials – especially with Liverpool riding high above them.

The two main title contenders meet at the Etihad on January 3, in what is sure to be a vital match in the title race.

A draw was the result in the reverse fixture at Anfield – Riyad Mahrez missed a late, late penalty that would have secured City victory – and if Liverpool win this time around they would have one hand on the trophy in the opening days of 2019.
