Man Utd legend Ferdinand: I'd rather Man City win than Liverpool

Rio Ferdinand has taken a dig at Liverpool fans after speaking about the Reds' Premier League title challenge this season.

He was finishing chances without even thinking about it last season and that freedom has been lost in recent months, with what looked like partial returns to form against Watford and in the away game at Bayern Munich quickly forgotten after his display at Craven Cottage.

During the end of previous year, Liverpool were seven points clear at the club but since then they have constantly dropped points and right now they are just two points ahead of second-placed Man City having played one game more.

We are now revising our match predictions for these last 8 games based on current form and we will predict the final table at the end of the season?

As a former Manchester United player, Ferdinand admitted that it was hard to pick between the two sides due to his allegiances, but he ultimately chose City over Liverpool.

"This is the worst possible case, scenario for someone that likes Man United, supports Man United and has played for Man United, and I'm a pundit that's got to speak about it publicly and squirm and what not".

The 35-year-old was clearly delighted by the message and sent a message of total support back to Liverpool.

While they have a great squad, that run of matches would test any team and if they come through April winning every match and remaining on course to win a quadruple of trophies, Liverpool would have to accept they are a team of worthy champions.

Pallister though says he has been impressed with Liverpool for keeping up with Pep Guardiola's side throughout the campaign.

Liverpool FC sealed a 2-1 win at Fulham on Sunday to move two points clear of Manchester City, who have played a game less than Klopp's men.

"I think they've got the experience of doing it", he continued.
