Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has predicted where Manchester City and Liverpool will finish this season.
Mourinho says Liverpool will win the league this season after Jurgen Klopp's men thrashed City 3-1 on Sunday at Anfield to stretch their lead to 34 points. The victory saw the Reds move nine points ahead of City who are fourth on the log. And Mourinho doesn't think Liverpool will allow their lead to slip at the top of the table.
"If you are behind [in the title race], you have to feel like you can reach them. If you are top of the league with a big advantage, you have to feel like it is not over," he told Sky Sports.
"But I am not there, I’m here. And here, from my position, I think it’s done unless something dramatic happens in terms of an injury situation that breaks the team. But I think the team is a complete puzzle. I feel the way they play is adapted to the qualities of the players."
"City are capable of winning seven, eight, nine matches in a row, but I can’t see how Liverpool can lose this advantage of nine points to them."
The Reds have finished in second place on four different occasions in 2002, 2009, 2014 and 2019.
