Liverpool

Reds ace hopes for United favour

23rd April 2019, 01:07 by Michael Holland

Liverpool must win all their remaining games and if it is not good enough then Manchester City deserve the title, James Milner says.

Following the latest win over Cardiff, the Reds now have 88 points, two more than Rafael Benitez's side managed 10 years ago in finishing runners-up to Manchester United.

Even if they win their remaining three games and make 97, it may not be enough as City have a game in hand.

"We just need to win the rest of our games," Milner said. "If we do that and it's not good enough then you have to hold your hands up and say 'well done City'.

"They are a top team, they have done it before and are grinding it out. It's frustrating to think we've had one defeat all year and it might not be enough. But all we can do is win the rest of our games and put them under pressure."

Meanwhile, Milner admits he will become a Manchester United supporter for the first time when they face City on Wednesday night.

Milner counts United's three great rivals - Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester City - on a 17-year playing CV, but will put history to one side in the Manchester derby on Wednesday when City meet United at Old Trafford.

The derby is City's game in hand on Liverpool and victory will restore their one-point lead at the top with three matches of the season remaining. "First time in my life," Milner said about his support for United this week.
