Merseyside giants Liverpool have been tipped for their first Premier League title after seeing off nearest challengers Manchester City.

This is according to former AS Roma and AC Milan right-back Cafu.

In a chat with The Sun, Brazilian national team legend Cafu backed Liverpool over Manchester City for the league title.

Liverpool took a major step to ending their long wait for the Premier League title after beating Manchester City 3-1 in front of their home fans in a controversial manner.

The Reds took a controversial lead inside the first ten minutes through a stunning strike from Brazilian midfielder Fabinho.

Liverpool scored immediately after center referee Michael Oliver had waved away a genuine penalty shout from Manchester City after right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold handled in the box.

The Reds added a second goal almost immediately when Mohamed Salah found the back of the net with a 13th-minute header off a fantastic cross from left-back Andy Robertson.

Manchester City created several chances but were unable to find the back of the net before Sadio Mane put the game beyond doubt with a thiŕd Liverpool goal at the start of the second half.

Bernardo Silva pulled one back twelve minutes from time with what was a consolation goal for Manchester City as Liverpool extended their league lead to eight points.
