Neville selfishly names the two dates he would prefer Liverpool to win the title

Gary Neville has selfishly named the two dates he would prefer Liverpool to win the Premier League title, admitting he would like to be away from the Sky Sports’ cameras when Jurgen Klopp’s side seal the championship.

Liverpool‘s 3-2 win over West Ham restored their 22-point advantage at the top of the division leaving the Merseyside club needing just four wins to secure an elusive league title, the Reds on the verge of ending a three-decade wait for top-flight success.

Former Manchester United defender Neville admits he is resigned to seeing his former side’s arch-rivals win the Premier League, but hopes their victory can be secured by Man City dropping points on either March 14 or April 11.

Speaking on Sky Sports Monday Night Football: “I have just been given my March and April fixtures this morning and my absolute preference is for Manchester City to drop points at either Burnley or Southampton and hand Liverpool the title because there are no Sky cameras anywhere near me.

“They are both Saturday afternoon at 3 o’clock and I can be at home, relaxed, out of the way. The last place I want to be is in the stadium when they win it.

“I know that doesn’t suit the company or Sky or maybe even Liverpool fans, or even anybody at home, but if City can drop points at either Burnley or Southampton that would be ideal.”

Klopp admits he ‘never thought’ Man City’s winning run would be broken
