Kevin Kilbane: "I edge towards City for the league"

Kevin Kilbane thinks Man City will beat Liverpool to the Premier League title this season after both sides won this weekend.

The Reds overcame a dogged Crystal Palace side 4-3 at Anfield on Saturday before Man City cantered to a 3-0 win away at Huddersfield on Sunday.

City have two pivotal clashes against Arsenal and Chelsea back-to-back in February but the former Republic of Ireland international expects Guardiola's side to get the 6 points on offer and pip Klopp's team to the title.

Speaking to Off the Ball's Stephen Doyle after City secured another three points, he said: "City have got the quality and the talent where you expect them to get the six points from them. Looking at Liverpool yesterday, they probably got a little bit of luck along the way in that Palace game yesterday I would say, putting massive pressure on City coming into this game today.

"If you play first and you get that win - you can relax a little bit for a couple of days, watch City and just keep that little bit of pressure on them but City are able to keep up with them.

"I think there's going to be a lot into March and April this year where I think we're going to see both sides dropping points but if they can win those two games - I think it puts massive pressure on Liverpool - knowing that Liverpool have got to play these two teams further down the line.

"Certainly those two games - get the wins in the Premier League, get them done and dusted, put pressure back on Liverpool and I think that's the way it's got to be for them towards the end of the season for them.

"I think they've got enough quality in them to stay with Liverpool and I edge towards City for the League - that's the way that I'm looking at it," he added.

Liverpool currently have a four point lead over City after 23 matches.
