‘Hungry’ Liverpool tipped to win Premier League

Liverpool have been tipped to win the Premier League title this season, despite Manchester City being the odds-on favourites.

Despite being the second most successful club in English football history with 18 league titles, they strangely are yet to get their hands on the title in the Premier League era, with their last triumph coming back in 1990.

However, they seem to be back on the road to success having reached last years Champions League final, playing some breathtaking football along the way.

Now, former England left-back Stuart Pearce thinks that 2018/19 could finally be Liverpool‘s year:

“I personally think they’ll win the league this year,” he told Sky Sports The Debate show.

“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.”

Liverpool have got off to a fine start to the season, beating West Ham and Crystal Palace 4-0 and 2-0 respectively, and are the only team in the league yet to concede a goal.
