Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has revealed that fans of city rivals Manchester United want the Citizens to win the Premier League title ahead of Liverpool.
Kyle Walker talked about the league title in his recent interview via Goal just ahead of the all-important Manchester Derby clash between hosts Manchester United and Manchester City.
The former Tottenham Hotspur right-back told reporters that the Manchester United fans he has encountered while outside walking his dog want the Premier League title for his Manchester City team ahead of Liverpool.
Manchester United and Liverpool share an age-long rivalry and it’s not surprising that the Red Devils fans would want the Citizens to win the league title ahead of their arch-rivals.
The Citizens are the defending champions in the Premier League and they can win a second successive title in the competition by winning their remaining four games starting with the Manchester Derby at the Theatre of Dreams on Wednesday night.
Manchester City can become only the third team to retain the Premier League title after Manchester United and Chelsea if they are able to hold off Liverpool.
The Reds have a two-point cushion over Manchester City on the league standings but the holders can usurp Liverpool with a win in the Manchester Derby.
