Luke Chadwick, a former Manchester United midfielder, is still confident that Manchester City will edge Liverpool in the Premier League title race, despite the fact that the Reds’ victory in the Carabao Cup final will give them “huge confidence” as they battle on four fronts for the remainder of the season.
Last season, Liverpool were unable to win any trophies, and they will be delighted to have returned to winning ways this season after defeating Chelsea on penalties at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Even though Liverpool have closed the gap slightly following recent results, Manchester City remain at the top of the Premier League standings for the time being, with Tottenham’s 3-2 win at the Etihad Stadium indicating that the title race is much closer than many would have predicted a month or so ago.
As a former Manchester United player, Chadwick acknowledges it would be difficult to see his old rivals Liverpool win four titles this season.
“It’s the first time Klopp has won a domestic cup competition since joining the club.” “That’ll give them a lot of confidence now, though I’m sure there’ll be a few more twists and turns in the title race before the season is out,” Chadwick said in an interview with CaughtOffside.
Liverpool or Manchester City will meet in the final, and while I still believe City will win, I believe Liverpool will come close, and I believe we could be in for one of the most thrilling finals in recent memory.”
“Both of them have a lot of difficult games ahead of them, but I still think City will win it.” Because of course they’re vying on four fronts, I wouldn’t want them to win the treble or the quadruple for themselves!
City currently lead Liverpool by six points, but the Reds have a game in hand, while Pep Guardiola’s team faces Manchester United at the weekend, which may be tricky.
