Roy Hodgson has said that it is going to be a tight race to the top of the Premier League this season.
The former Liverpool manager led his side Crystal Palace to a massive victory over Manchester City in their last outing.
Crystal Palace manager and former Liverpool gaffer Roy Hodgson has said that it will not be easy for the Reds to take the title this season. Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently at the top of the table with a four-point gap with reigning champions Manchester City after the Eagles went onto getting the better of the Citizens in their last match at the Etihad Stadium. This was the second loss for Pep Guardiola’s men in the Premier League this season.
When asked whether Liverpool are the favourites to win the Premier League or not, the veteran manager said, “I don’t think Pep Guardiola will be too concerned about a four-point gap with 20 games left to play.”
He added, “Someone will beat them against the odds, there is a long way to go yet and there will be an upset somewhere along the line.”
Under Hodgson’s tutelage, Liverpool saw a dip in their form and had to sack him eventually, bringing in Sir Kenny Dalglish, who went onto revive the pride for the Reds in the 2010/11 season in the Premier League. His current team Crystal Palace have also been hovering around the relegation zone this season, having won only five of their 18 matches so far and might look to lodge a fightback after beating the defending Champions Manchester City.
