Martin Keown predict EPL title winners


Former Arsenal defender, Martin Keown, has said Liverpool are now the “firm favourites” to win the Premier League title.

Speaking on TNT Sports, Keown said the Reds’ upcoming game against Manchester United on Sunday could be key.

Jurgen Klopp’s men could go top of the table if they beat Sheffield United at home on Thursday night.

But Keown has said the crucial fixture is on Sunday against their rivals.

He said: “It’s wide open between now and the end of the season,” he said.

“Liverpool have the points; they look favourites. But Arsenal have to get the job done. City, we know, are quite magnificent. They’re born winners in that group and their manager is a serial winner.

“The difference this year is that they can win every game, but it doesn’t mean that they’re going to be champions. Liverpool have the points. I think they look better but all three of them have got to play Spurs.

“I’d be going into their game against Manchester United saying ‘If we can beat Man United, who finished our season in the FA Cup, we can be Premier League champions.’ It’s that big. I definitely feel that [it could be the tuning point].”
