Nicky Summerbee reckons it will be City 2 Liverpool 1 when the nation’s top two go head to head at the Etihad on Sunday. The showdown is being widely predicted as the game that will decide the Premier League title.

Summerbee, the son of the Blues’ legendary winger Mike, told the Betfred TV Football Show that he believes City having home advantage and more midfield creativity will be the telling factors.

But he believes the visitors may well take advantage of City’s lack of an established centre forward, with Liverpool’s tactics to allow Pep Guardiola’s team to have much of the possession – but then hit them on the counter attack.

Liverpool are just one point behind City but with a better goal difference. The match has added spice as Liverpool could land the quad, while City chase a treble …. and don’t forget they play each other next Saturday at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final.

Summerbee forecast a gloomy weekend too for Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton. He told the show he thinks Manchester United will win at Goodison – and Burnley will pick up all three points at Norwich, thus putting Frank Lampard’s Toffees in the bottom three.
