Lauren believes Manchester City will win the Premier League title this season ahead of reigning champions Liverpool due to the drop-off in performances from Jurgen Klopp’s side of late.

City have climbed up the table in recent weeks and if they beat Aston Villa on Wednesday, they will go level on points with league leaders Leicester with a game in hand.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are enduring a stuttering spell in their title defence with their goalless draw against Manchester United last weekend extending their winless run to four games.

Despite not playing with a recognised striker of late, Pep Guardiola’s side have won five league games on the bounce and conceded just one goal in the process.

Arsenal Invincible squad member Lauren feels Liverpool aren’t the unstoppable force they were last season, and can see City landing their third Premier League title under Guardiola.

‘This season is going to be tight,’ Lauren told Genting Bet. ‘Liverpool will be there and I’m surprised at how well Manchester United have recovered but I believe that Manchester City will win the league.

‘They are slowly climbing positions in the league. The quality is there and at the end of the day when you have a squad with top players in your team, the easier it is to win things.

‘I believe that the end of the year, they will be there and I think they will win because Liverpool have dropped now.

‘They have dropped and are not comfortable and in the last games they lost heavily when you didn’t expect them to lose. They have dropped a little bit and they are not the same Liverpool as last year.’

Tottenham enjoyed a bright start to the campaign and are now within just five points off the top of the table, however, Lauren thinks there is zero chance of Spurs winning the title

‘Tottenham have no chance of winning the league,’ he added.

‘They will be there in the European places and maybe even Champions League positions but I cannot see them winning the Premier League.’
