Joleon Lescott believes no Liverpool player could make into the Manchester City’s current lineup.
It has been a neck to neck title fight as both Manchester City and Liverpool are not ready to give up without a proper fight. Jurgen Klopp’s side has ramped up the intensity as the season progresses and is looking immensely sharp with each game passing.
On the other side, the Sky Blues are determined to defend their Premier League title and have been on a ruthless mode demolishing opponents after opponents. Pep Guardiola’s side is also hoping to seal a quadruple and could be the first team to achieve this feat.
Lescott who lifted two top flight titles with Manchester City said, “Both Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp will each be happy with their own team and their players suit their styles of football.
“I’m not sure I’d take a single one of Liverpool’s players for Man City’s team, but it’s fair to say both have put together great squads.
“From a Man City perspective, I have been very impressed with Aymeric Laporte this season, who has arguably made a similar impact to what Virgil Van Dijk has at Liverpool.”
“I expect Manchester City to go on to win the Premier League. It is interesting that they’ve been able to overtake Liverpool so quickly.
“I don’t think it’s a surprise that Man City have won the games they have, but rather that Liverpool have dropped points in recent weeks.
“They haven’t performed well in the games they should have done and Man City have been able to capitalise on that.”
