Paul Merson has made a damming prediction for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
City lost their third match of the season and Pep’s team are now 9 points behind Liverpool, the league leaders. Paul Merson said,
Liverpool have lost one game in the last 51 and they have played Man City three times in that time, so I just do not see them losing four or five games ’till the end of the season.
That is what they would have to lose as City would not be able to afford to lose any games if they only lost three.
So for me, I think it is Liverpool’s to throw away – if they do not win it this year, I cannot tell you when they will win it again.
I do not see City catching them, not with their defensive problems at the moment. They are just nowhere near good enough defensively.
And I just think Liverpool are too good and I just do not see them getting beaten by any of the lesser teams. And if they do, they have to score two or three goals, which is not going to happen.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp this is the moment to seize. As for Pep Guardiola, he faces the risk of losing his team control and title like he did in his final season at Barcelona and ended up leaving Barcelona. Is that what will happen here as well?
