Lescott Admits He Wouldn’t Pick Any Liverpool Players For City’s Team

Speaking to Sportingbet, the 36-year-old former defender was asked how many of Liverpool's players would feature in City's first team.

Liverpool FC sealed a 2-1 win at Fulham on Sunday to move two points clear of Manchester City, who have played a game less than Klopp's men.

Heading into the worldwide break, Liverpool are two points clear of Manchester City, but have played a game more than the current champions.

The statement came as Lescott said that Pep Guardiola's side are the "only team" capable of winning the quadruple and are "the best team" that has been assembled.

"That rivalry, it's always going to beat the Man City derby".

Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk.

Before the season started our table predictor correctly stated Manchester City would have 74 points after 30 matches, but the key difference is that Liverpool are 9 points better off than we predicted, making this potentially the tightest Premier League title run in for years!

Liverpool FC will take on FC Porto in the quarter-finals of the Champions League next month as they bid to try and reach the last four for the second season running.

"Retaining the Premier League title will be Man City's biggest achievement and to become the first side to do it since Sir Alex Ferguson retired from Manchester United is another camel off their backs in the city".

Lescott, who played for City between 2009 and 2014 and picked up two Premier League winners' medals in the process, went on to back his former employers to retain their crown, insisting that the Reds have blown their chances of glory already. It's now in Manchester City's hands and I don't expect them to let it slip. "It is interesting that they've been able to overtake Liverpool so quickly".
