EPL: They will also make mistakes – Rafa Benitez predicts title winners

Former Real Madrid and Liverpool manager, Rafa Benitez, has tipped Manchester City to go on and win the Premier League title this season.

City are now two points clear at the top, after Arsenal and Liverpool suffered shock defeats to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace respectively on Sunday.

With six matches left for all three teams, Benitez feels there will be more dropped points, but Pep Guardiola’s men will finish top.

Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: “Manchester City are playing with a lot of confidence. They have a good squad – they can change three or four players and still win easily.

“Can I see them making similar mistakes as Liverpool and Arsenal did this weekend? Yes, I can. But at the same time the others could make mistakes so I think City have a great advantage.’

“I watched both games and Liverpool had some bad luck because they had some great chances.

“A similar thing happened with Arsenal, they were better in the first half but then they lost control of the game and they were suffering. I think, like Liverpool, being in this position where they cannot lose games or drop points affected them.”
