Alan Shearer is confident, either Liverpool or Manchester City will win the Premier League this season. Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester have won their last three matches to climb to the top of the Premier League table ahead of the second international break of the season.
The Foxes are one point ahead of Jose Mourinho’s Spurs and defending champions Liverpool. Shearer has welcomed the unpredictability of this season but says he expects Liverpool and Man City to win the title.
He wrote in a column for BBC Sport: “I still see Liverpool and Manchester City as the stand-out teams in the Premier League and think one of them will win the title – but Leicester and Tottenham might have something to say about that
“Southampton also spent some time on top of the table over the weekend and it is pretty refreshing to see some different teams up there. It certainly keeps things interesting and it’s something that might last a bit longer too.
“The big thing that has stood out already about this season is how unpredictable it has been compared to previous years. Every team has had at least one bad day. That makes it exciting, and I don’t see it changing anytime soon, partly because of the intense schedule and the number of injuries that clubs are going to have to cope with – which is turning into another common theme.
“Liverpool can still terrify teams when they pour forward and, like Man City, they are not going away anytime soon. This season may be unpredictable, but one of them will end it as champions, I am certain of that.”
