Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen says he believes Manchester City have the harder run in of the two teams battling it out for the Premier League title.
The Reds currently sit second in the table, one point behind Manchester City in the race for top spot. On December 31, Liverpool held a seven-point lead over City, but the gap has since been bridged and the tables look to have turned.
Jurgen Klopp's side have drawn four of their last six matches, while the Citizens are on an impressive run of nine wins in ten.

Despite the recent turn in form for Liverpool, former striker Owen has given his own take on how the season will play out.
“I’ll feel sorry for whoever doesn’t because in any other year the second team would’ve won the Premier League by maybe ten points. This year has been an exceptional standard and it’s going to go a long way yet.
Liverpool have played the most demanding part of their season in recent weeks and will look to the next run of games to get them out of a minor slump. The Reds host Tottenham and Chelsea at Anfield in the only two high-profile matches left for them in the campaign.
