Manchester City star Raheem Sterling feels that the Premier League race will be very intense. Manchester City and Liverpool were the two major pre-Premier League favorites. Right now, both teams have stood out from the rest and are battling it out for the title. Liverpool are currently at the top of the league table with 85 points. Reigning champions Manchester City are 2 points behind Liverpool but have played a match lesser than them.

Sterling who netted a brace against Crystal Palace during the weekend, feels that the intensity of the title race will be till the end of the season. 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.

Manchester City next take on Spurs in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.
