Robbie Fowler has been quoted by Omnisport after being named as Australian A-League side Brisbane Roar manager that he believes “stranger things” have happened than Liverpool winning the Premier League title.
Manchester City earned a crucial 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend to keep the pressure on Liverpool, who sit ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side by a point.
However, City have a game in hand over Liverpool and that comes in the form of the Manchester derby on Wednesday evening. A win for City sees them go two points ahead of Liverpool, with three league matches to play.
Fowler was appointed Brisbane Roar manager on Tuesday and although he stated that he hopes Liverpool win the Premier League, he does not see Manchester City giving up points against Manchester United.
“I hope so [Liverpool win the league], everyone knows my allegiances are with Liverpool,” Fowler said. “It’s going to be tough for them, because Manchester City can beat anyone on their day.
“They’ve got four games to play, four very winnable games. To use a bit of mind-management, Manchester United need to a bit of a favour for Liverpool. I don’t think I can see it happening, but stranger things have happened.”
Fowler is bang on, and the fact he is a Liverpool supporter shows that Manchester City are in the driving seat to win the Premier League after Saturday’s ballsy win over Tottenham.
With no disrepect to Brighton, Leicester and Burnley, Manchester City should pick up nine points from those three matches. It is Wednesday’s clash against Manchester United that will decide the title.
