Murphy: Man City won't win Premier League Liverpool will
It's a rare thing, hearing pundits say something positive about Liverpool. Even more rare is hearing it to the detriment of Man City.
But according to Match of the Day pundit, Danny Murphy, Man City won't win the Premier League this season. Liverpool will.
His reasoning is that Man City will be too focused on winning the Champions League: theirs, and Guardiola's, holy grail.
Speaking to the Mirror, Murphy had this to say: "I think Liverpool will win the league this year.
"Only one club had done it three times on the trot and I think Man City will be so Champions League focused.
"So I'm going Liverpool, City and then Tottenham, I think they'll take third.
"I actually think fourth will go to Man United. I think Chelsea will do all right and Frank Lampard is a great appointment.
"But United have gone big in the market and the quality they have in the final third - I mean there is doom and gloom around them, but I think they'll surprise a few."
