Graeme Souness, the former Liverpool midfielder, believes the Reds represent the more reliable side heading into the Premier League title run-in, comparing champions Manchester City to a Ferrari.
“Man City are a Ferrari - Liverpool are, I wouldn’t say a Ford Mondeo, but not a Ferrari”Seven wins in a row have put Pep Guardiola’s side on course to retain the trophy they won with a century of points last season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side meanwhile have frittered away a seven-point lead at the top and have looked far from their usual selves since losing their only top-flight game of the season at City in January.
“With a Ferrari a lot more could go wrong. A lot more could go wrong with City’s play than with Liverpool,” Graeme told.
“Liverpool have the best defensive record, don’t concede goals, grind results out when they’re not going well like they did at Fulham,” he added.
