Mark Goldbridge has predicted Liverpool to beat Manchester City 1-0 when the two sides clash on Sunday at Anfield.
The Manchester United-mad YouTuber, who has 99.4k subscribers on his independent Football YouTube channel, shared he thought the Reds were the better team and couldn’t see Man City getting a result on Sunday.
Goldbridge then added that Liverpool getting a win would effectively end the race for the Premier League title and he pointed out it was ridiculous that it could all be over in November.
“I think Liverpool are actually the better team and I’m going to go Liverpool to win it 1-0,” said Goldbridge on his latest edition of ‘That’s Football’ on YouTube (3mins 10 mark).
“But it could be a draw, Man City need a result but I don’t fancy them to get one and the pressure is on Pep as Klopp has the home advantage and knows that City have to come and win really.
“If you’re Klopp, I wouldn’t do what Brendan Rodgers did against Chelsea and sit back, actually he went for it actually, if I was Klopp I’d just be very careful, let’s defend well, let’s hurt them on the break and let’s not lose this game, and I don’t think that will happen.
“So I’d go with Liverpool and that effectively would mean the title race is over in November, and that’s ridiculous.”
No one can accuse Goldbridge of being bias with his prediction as given his Manchester Untied fandom, he dislikes Man City and Liverpool equally, after all this is the guy who has a dedicated United YouTube channel with 578,000 subscribers. So with that in mind, he must really rate Liverpool in order to actually back them to get a win as well as wrap up the league title on Sunday as that is clearly a painful thought for him. However, while Liverpool fans will be hoping Goldbridge is right for once with his prediction, they likely won’t agree with him claiming it’s ridiculous that the title race could soon be over for two reasons. Firstly, most Liverpool fans won’t want to count their chickens before they hatch as even with a nine-point gap, it would be foolish to believe the trophy is in the bag before it officially is, and secondly, Liverpool fans will just be grateful that their side have gotten themselves in such a strong position that the title looks inevitable. After all the Reds have never won the Premier League title, and supporters have waited long enough.
