The 24-year old said, “100 percent [it’ll go to the last game] the way Liverpool have been playing. It will go down to the wire. I don’t see us slowing down now. Liverpool have a great squad, great self-belief, but so do we.”
Manchester City have an advantage at the moment because provided both teams win their remaining games, City will win the Premier League by a point. However, Liverpool Manchester City have tougher fixtures compared. While Liverpool have matches against Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town, Newcastle and Wolves, City have to take on Tottenham and Manchester United among other sides.
