Liverpool are leading Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table but will Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola end 2018/19 as a champion?

Everton striker Cenk Tosun believes Merseyside rivals Liverpool are set for heartbreak in the Premier League title race, in an exclusive interview with Fanatik.

The £27 million striker has endured a dreadful season at Goodison Park, scoring just three times in 27 games while falling behind Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in Marco Silva’s pecking order.

To make matters worse, he and his Everton teammates have been forced to watch Liverpool soar to the top of the Premier League.

With four games remaining, Jurgen Klopp’s side are two points clear although Manchester City are breathing down their neck with a game in hand.

 

Tosun has backed Pep Guardiola’s star-studded side to deny Liverpool their first top flight crown in 30 years.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world. My favourites in the championship race are Manchester City,” said the former Besiktas talisman when asked about whether the trophy will end up in Manchester or Merseyside.

“I think they are more experienced.”

While Liverpool could conceivably end 2018/19 with a legendary Premier League and Champions League double, Everton have little to play for by comparison.

The Toffees have endured a mixed season under Silva and the best they can hope for at this stage is to finish seventh and hope that is enough for Europa League qualification.
