Former Liverpool star Emile Heskey has said that the Reds have a key advantage in the title race over Manchester City.
The Reds are off to a perfect start and sit pretty on 24 points after 8 matches, 8 points ahead of Pep’s City.
“Man City will keep the pressure on Liverpool all season and even though they don’t have the best record defensively, going forward they can score 5, 6, 7 and 8 goals,” Heskey, who was speaking on behalf of GentingBet, told the Liverpool Echo.
“But I think last season helps Liverpool massively because they have now been through that battle before and they know what it will take to win it.
“I believe City won that battle before because they knew what it takes and how good they had to be to ensure they got around the same points total again.
“Liverpool didn’t know that but now they have actually been through that. It was amazing that they didn’t win the league with the amount of points they amassed. But now they know what it takes.
“I’d back Liverpool. I think they are ready and confident. City have done it before and it’s one of those that makes you a little weary, but I’d still back Liverpool over them.”
