Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, has claimed both Liverpool and Manchester City are under pressure to win the title, after the Reds’ unbeaten run came to an end at The Etihad on Thursday.
City cut the gap at the top of the Premier League to four points with a 2-1 win.
“We’ve got two fantastic teams to watch, they are brilliant teams, absolutely brilliant. I think both are under real pressure for different reasons. A club like Liverpool, and the history it has got for winning titles, cannot go 25, 26, 27 years without winning, and this is an incredible chance.
“It’s not a now-or-never moment, because Liverpool will always have chances in the future, but you don’t know when your next chance is going to come, you don’t know whether Chelsea or Manchester United or Manchester City are going to be better next year. But this is a moment where Liverpool have to take it.
“For Pep Guardiola, he’s over here to dominate. He’s not over here to win one title in three. I think what you saw from him tonight was him demanding from his team: ‘Are you going to be a team that are a one-season wonder… the best team ever that can’t win back-to-back titles?’ He’s here to create a dynasty. So they are both under pressure for different reasons.
“We’ve got a title race to look forward to,” Neville said on Sky Sports.
