The legendary trailblazer of Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson surprisingly has his eye on Liverpool winning the Premier League this year. Ferguson believes that the Reds have the upper hand and will reign supreme over Manchester City. Manchester City and Manchester United will go head to head at Old Trafford on the 24th of April.
Ferguson’s former teammate, Jonathan Walters made the claim after speaking with Phil Bardsley who reportedly spent time with Ferguson during the week. “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 thinks Liverpool because he thinks United will get something out of the City game.” Walters adds.
City’s next match is a home game against Tottenham in the noon kick-off on Saturday, while Liverpool will be traveling to Cardiff on Sunday afternoon. The Reds are 85 points ahead 34 games in and are two points clear of City who have one more game in hand.
