Murphy picks favourite to win EPL title


Former Liverpool star Danny Murphy said the Reds and Manchester City are favourites to win the Premier League title ahead of Arsenal.

Murphy pinpointed three fixtures that could derail the Gunners amid their title race with Liverpool and City.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City are separated by just three points after 29 matches.

However, Murphy believes both Liverpool and City have considerably easier run-ins.

“This is what we want from a Premier League title race,” Murphy said on talkSPORT.

“Unless you are a Man City fan, you probably want someone else to win it. I don’t think Arsenal will get over the line just because of the fixtures. They’ve got to go to Tottenham, Old Trafford and Brighton.

“I think Liverpool have a hell of a good run-in; it is only that Tottenham game that would worry me for them. Man City have a pretty good one as well.

“I think the best thing that happened for Liverpool was getting knocked out of the FA Cup because that would have given them a right good kick up the bum. I don’t see Liverpool making that mistake again; they are too good for United.”
