Steven Gerrard admits the Premier League is shaping up for one of its greatest-ever seasons after assessing the chances of a number of title hopefuls.
Gerrard, who splits his time between Merseyside and California, where he plays in MLS for the Los Angeles Galaxy, confesses to still being hooked on the trials and tribulations of the Premier League.
In the interview with Radio City Talk, he said: “With Jurgen Klopp and Ronald Koeman on Merseyside, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho in Manchester and Antonio Conte, Mauricio Pochettino and Arsene Wenger in London it’s really exciting for the Premier League.
“I can’t wait until there’s around 10 games to go to see how it all unfolds. This could be one of the best ever seasons.
“What I have seen so far City are flying while I fancy Liverpool to break into the top four. I fancied Chelsea until Liverpool went there and won.
“I was disappointed with them. City are a definite and then I think there’s five teams fighting for three positions, Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea.”
Gerrard also admits he is considering a playing return to England when his LA Galaxy deal expires next month, and has also called on critics to stop giving Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson a hard time.
