Former Manchester City manager Stuart Pearce predicts Liverpool will pip Manchester City to the Premier League crown this season.
The Reds have won their first two top-flight games and put in an impressive display in their 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday Night.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have come close to winning trophies in recent years, but have failed to win any of the finals including the loss to Madrid in Kiev back in May.
However, Pearce who was in the dugout for the Hammers last season believes the Reds have the experience and belief to end their title jinx.
“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.”
