'I've got a feeling': BBC pundit shares the game he thinks City could lose to hand Liverpool the title

The Premier League title race between Manchester City and Liverpool looks all set to go right down to the wire.

It would not be a surprise if neither club dropped another point between now and the end of the season.

If that happens, City would retain their title at the expense of Liverpool at the end of what has been a hugely impressive campaign for both clubs.

Pundits are looking for potential banana skins. Ian Wright said last month that Liverpool could lose ground against Tottenham.

And now, speaking on the BBC’s Monday Night Club, fellow pundit Chris Sutton has picked out a game where he thinks City could potentially hand the title to Liverpool.

“I’ve got a feeling there will be a twist,” he said.

“West Ham away, that’s where I think City could slip up.”

Their current priority is the Europa League, with the second leg of their semi-final clash with Eintracht Frankfurt coming up on Thursday.

If they make the final, perhaps those final Premier League games could go by the wayside slightly as David Moyes tries to rest his thin squad ahead of a huge game.

If West Ham are out of Europe, they could have a real go in the final weeks of the season and they are dangerous opponents for any side when they are on their game.

It is hard to see City or Liverpool dropping points when they are on their current form but it is a gruelling season and tiredness could play its part.
