Jamie Carragher shares who is most likely to win the Premier League after Liverpool draw

Jamie Carragher has now been sharing his thoughts on the tantalising title race between Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.

The draw between Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola’s sides at Anfield yesterday has left just one point between the trio mentioned

And with no Premier League football for the top three until after the international break, it’s sure to be a tense few weeks.

Arsenal will next be in league action when they travel to the Etihad at the end of the month, another game that simply can’t be missed.

It’s hard to remember the last time Premier League fans were treated to such a genuine three-horse contest, which really could go down to the wire.

And that being said, Jamie Carragher has now shared his thoughts on who he thinks is most likely to win the title race.

The pundit was speaking on Sky Sports shortly after the action concluded yesterday and confessed that Man City were still the team to beat.

And from his point of view as a former Liverpool player, he said he’d still rather Arsenal beat City later this month despite Mikel Arteta’s side being top right now.

Jamie Carragher says Man City are still the team to beat in the title race
Carragher thought that a draw was perfect for Arsenal yesterday, but still feared what City can do during the ‘business end’ of the season.

He explained: “If you’re Arsenal you would think a perfect result is a draw.

“I think Liverpool will be watching [Manchester City v Arsenal] and wanting a draw, from Liverpool or Arsenal’s point of view they are trying to chase down City.

“City are still the team to beat I would say.

“Even though Arsenal are top I would prefer to watch Arsenal win at Manchester City and certainly not a City win as City’s last five-to-six games of the season you will expect them to get maximum points.”

And given both Liverpool and Arsenal fans have watched their team lose out to City in title races before, they’d probably still reluctantly agree with Carragher’s words here.

Although they definitely could have been beaten yesterday, there’s almost an inevitability that Man City will pick up maximum points when it matters most.

That being said, Peter Drury has now shared what VAR said when Liverpool demanded a late penalty which could have swung the title race yesterday.
