Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen, has admitted that Manchester City will become the first side in a decade to retain the Premier League title this weekend.
Owen however expects his old club to also win and reach the 97 point mark with a final day win.
Liverpool and City head into the final day of the season separated by just a point at the top of the table.
Pep Guardiola’s champions head to Brighton knowing that victory will hand them back-to-back titles.
But Jurgen Klopp’s Champions League finalists are waiting for any slip up from City, as they seek a first title in 29 years.
“It is hard to see the Seagulls stopping City winning their 14th successive league game.
“That stat shows just how hard Liverpool have made City work for the title. The Seagulls showed at Arsenal on Sunday that they will not lie down and, indeed, could have snatched it at the death at the Emirates had they shown more composure in front of goal.
“City were not at their brilliant best against Leicester on Monday night but a moment of inspiration from skipper Vincent Kompany was enough to give them the points. Pep Guardiola’s side would love an early goal, but they may have to be patient on the south coast although I do believe they will, eventually, run out comfortable winners,” Owen told BetVictor.
