Ashley Cole says Man City will win the Premier League if they win their next three matches
That is the opinion of former Arsenal and Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole.
City were second in the Premier League table heading into Sunday’s match at Crystal Palace.
Pep Guardiola’s side were two points behind leaders Liverpool but do have a game in hand.
After the Palace clash City host Tottenham before a trip to local rivals Manchester United.
If Man City can win the next three then I think Man City win the league
And Cole says Manchester City winning those three matches will end Liverpool’s title hopes.
“When you look at them fixtures, if Man City can win the next three then I think Man City win the league,” Cole said on Sky Sports.
“But it’s a big if.
“You’ve got Tottenham at home which is a tough game and of course Man United away.
“So I think Man City are looking at the fixtures and saying Liverpool have got an easier run in.
“But as Man City players have they have confidence in their own ability.
“They will think that they still have a chance.”
Meanwhile, former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp believes both City and the Reds will drop points in their remaining matches.
“I do think they will both drop points,” Redknapp said.
“I don’t see a situation where they will both pick three points up from every game this season.
“I think there will be some dropped points still.”
