Waddle reckons it’s ‘highly unlikely’ Man City will slip up at Brighton

Chris Waddle has admitted that he can’t foresee any final day slip-ups from Man City today.

Man City and Liverpool have been matching each other stride for stride in what has been one of the most epic title races in Premier League history.

Despite their efforts though, Liverpool know they can do no more other than hope that Pep Guardiola’s side slip up in their final game of the season against Brighton, while City know a win at the AmEx will see them reclaim their Premier League crown.

However, speaking exclusively to The Football Faithful, Chris Waddle admitted that he isn’t expecting any more changes at the top of the table.

“Well, it’s highly unlikely, I’ve got to say,” Waddle told our podcast.

“I think City and Liverpool are the two outstanding teams in the Premier League, they just seem to win, win, win. You’ve got to give City a lot of credit they were nearly 10 points behind at Christmas, and everybody thought it was Liverpool because you couldn’t really see Liverpool losing a game. But City have chased them down, got their noses in front and it’s going to the last game.

“Liverpool’s game is a very, very tricky game, we know how well Wolves have done this year against the top six. They’re very good on the counter-attack, very well organised and Liverpool are obviously carrying a few injuries at the moment. So that’s a very tricky game and Brighton, maybe if they needed a point or two, would make it an awkward game for City.

“But I just look at City and I think Brighton are very well organised and hard-working side, but they don’t score a lot of goals which is a big plus for Man City going into the game. I just think Man City with the players they’ve got, the confidence they’ve got in the team, they’ll just have too much for Brighton. I just can’t see them throwing that away.”
