Neville: Choosing City, Liverpool, picking which bloke to go with your wife

Premier League Trophy

Gary Neville says he can't bring himself to choose out of Liverpool and Manchester City when it comes to the Premier League title.

The race for the Premier League title is heating up, and for the first time in recent years, Manchester United are nowhere to be seen.

For former Manchester United ace Gary Neville, the scenario is even more unbearable due to the fact it now appears one of the club's bitter rivals are destined to lift the trophy.

Manchester City and Liverpool are the two favourites after Chelsea's slip up at the weekend, although there are undoubtedly several twists and turns still to come.

These could begin unfolding in a fortnight's time when Manchester City head to Anfield in what is being billed as an early title decider, although a draw could let Chelsea back into the race.

For Gary Neville, picking between City and Liverpool is an unwelcome choice.

Subject of ribbing on SkySports Monday Night Football, Neville was teased that he must be looking forward to the clash, but responded that picking a preference was a decision he was unwilling to make.

His response may just be a line which you see repeated in the days and weeks to come:

"Choosing City or Liverpool to take the title is like 'choosing which bloke nicks your wife'."
