Football pundit Paul Merson doesn’t have any doubt over Manchester City’s win against Brighton & Hove Albion.
Pep Guardiola’s side is currently a point ahead of Liveprool in title race and will visit Brighton, that has secured their place in EPL for next season and doesn’t have any motivation for this season. Meanwhile, Liverpool will face Wolves at Anfield Road.
“I just can’t see Man City not winning. Nothing shocks me in football after the Champions League this week. But when you look at this week, the two teams who came back are very good teams, with very good players. Even though it was a miracle, people will say miracles happen, Brighton have a chance – they’re not the same class as the players who did what they did this week.” Merson wrote for Sky Sports.
“They’re grinding results out as well. At the start of the season they were wiping the floor with teams, now they’re not but they’re keeping clean sheets, being hard to beat and nicking goals. There was a bit of panic with Man City on Monday – no disrespect but Vincent Kompany’s shot should have gone 50 yards over! But they should be fine.” he added, saying that Man City will win 0-3.
