Shearer predicts outcome of Premier League title race

Alan Shearer has not shifted on his pick for the next Premier League winner between Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

The title race is heating up at the top of the table with a three-way battle emerging in the last few weeks, as just five points separate the sides.

Manchester City sit joint top of the Premier League table on 65 points, ahead of Liverpool on goal difference, while Spurs are in third place on 60 points.

With three months to go in the season the title could go any which way, but former Newcastle United legend Shearer is backing the form team of the moment to go the distance.

‘Who will win it? Well, I picked City at the start of the season, so I am going to stick with them,’ Shearer told the BBC.

‘I am not one to keep on changing my mind like a few people have.

‘But this is a three-horse race and it is going to be an exciting battle for the neutrals as well as for the fans of each of the teams involved.

‘City, Liverpool and Spurs all won this weekend, and it won’t be the last time that happens this season.

‘But the last couple of weeks have taught us there are plenty more twists and turns to come. Liverpool and City will not win all of their remaining games and, despite their recent resilience, neither will Spurs.

‘So it is all to play for all three teams. People are already talking about how Liverpool have been feeling the pressure when they dropped points against Leicester and West Ham, but in my experience you don’t feel it now – it is April when it really cranks up.

‘A slip-up now is not the end of the world, but if anything goes wrong then, it will be.

‘In the final few weeks of the season, one mistake can cost you everything and the players, managers and fans of the teams involved will all know that.

‘The next three months are going to be intense every time one of the contenders is in action and I am looking forward to seeing how things unfold.’
