Paul Merson is of the opinion that Manchester City have a big advantage over Liverpool in the Premier League title race. Liverpool are currently two points above Manchester City at the top of the table. However, City have a game in hand.
Both Liverpool and Manchester City play this weekend. However, City play Fulham tomorrow while Liverpool play Spurs the day after. Merson believes that City can pile more pressure on Liverpool by winning an early fixture.
The former Arsenal player said, “This is a nice game for City, they can throw the pressure on Liverpool before they play. I’m a great believer of playing first, you always want to take the first shot. I can’t see anything but a win for Pep Guardiola’s side, it would be a miracle if Fulham got a result.
I just hope Fulham continue doing well under Scott Parker and he gets the job because they have improved under him.”
