The former Manchester City and Irish defender Richard Dunne sits down to talk with former Chelsea, Liverpool and England defender Glen Johnson to predict who they think will win the Premier League this season between both Liverpool and Manchester City.
The two discuss major talking points including who had the best transfer window, both Johnson and Dunne agree that City have done the best business this summer thus far.
Johnson explained: “City’s squad is fantastic anyway, you go and then put arguably one of the best strikers in the world into that equation, I think it’s a fantastic signing.”
Dunne agreed: “Haaland for £50m is unbelievable and Kalvin Phillips for, I think £40m, is a great price. Julian Alvarez the centre-forward they got from South America is sort of Craig Bellamy; dead fast, works really hard.
“With those players they’ve replaced the likes of [Gabriel] Jesus, [Oleksandr] Zinchenko and [Raheem] Sterling.”
The question was also asked of between Manchester City and Liverpool who’s the biggest club.
The former Ireland defender said; “Man City are a side that have grown, they’ve got a fanbase that’s getting bigger and bigger but Liverpool are a monster of a club.”
Johnson added: “They’ve been winning trophies since before we were born. That history is that bit you can’t replace at the moment.”
But they did agree that City would dominate the most over the next decade, so it’s all about the future for the Citizen fans.
Among the questions they debate are:
- Who has the best front three?
- Who has the best manager?
- Who is the biggest club?
- Who will win the Premier League?
It’s going to make for another cracking season and Liverpool will defiantly push Manchester City all the way and it’s turning out to be one of the best rivalries the Premier League has ever seen, between the two squads and the two managers going toe to toe for the highest honours in the game.
You’d have to feel sorry for Liverpool in one way, if it wasn’t for Manchester City, Liverpool would have a lot more league titles. Liverpool came so close to winning all four trophy’s last year, can they land all four this year? It’s going to be a major ask to reach the heights that they did last season, only to fall at the final hurdle.
We’ve missed the Premier League big time, how good is it to have it back, here’s hoping for another cracking season.
