Stuart Pearce has claimed that Liverpool have what it takes to overthrow Manchester City and become Premier League champions this season.
City won the league by 19 points last season, but both teams have started the 2018/19 campaign in fine form having won each of their first two fixtures.
Pearce believes it is a two-horse race this season between the Reds and the Sky Blues, and he reckons Jurgen Klopp’s men will be the ones celebrating.
“I personally think they’ll win the league this year,” he said.
“I think it’s a two-horse race between them and City and they might just come out on top.
“I’m seeing a belief within the group that I probably haven’t seen before from the back end of last season. They’re hungry as well. They lost the Champions League final and the manner in the way they lost the final will hurt them.
“They didn’t win the league last year so I think they’ve got the hunger in their belly. They’re chasing that first title for however long and I think that hunger will get them over the line.”
