Man Utd will win the Premier League ahead of Liverpool, exclusive poll of fans reveals with City miles off pace

MANCHESTER UNITED will win the Premier League this season, according to SunSport readers.

Jurgen Klopp's reigning champions had opened up a commanding lead atop the table just over two weeks ago after thumping Crystal Palace 7-0 at Selhurst Park.

But the Reds are now winless in their last three games, having most-recently lost to Southampton on the back of draws with Newcastle and West Brom.

Man Utd, meanwhile, have been in superb form, unbeaten in the league since their November 1 defeat at home to Arsenal.

And now, they can go top of the league with just a point from their game with Burnley on January 12.

And, Sun readers reckon United are now favourites for the title.

We asked you to vote on who would win the league this season, with 34.31 per cent of 6,000 responses backing Man Utd.

Liverpool earned 30.57 per cent of the fan vote, running United close despite their mounting injury crisis.

Manchester City are way back in third with just 18.04 per cent of the vote, with Tottenham fourth (6.15 per cent).

Leicester won 3.37 per cent of Sun readers' vote, with 'other clubs' earning 7.56 per cent.


Of the chasing pack, Aston Villa, Southampton and Everton are closest to top spot, ahead of struggling 'Big Six' sides Arsenal and Chelsea.

But for now, it appears to be a straight scrap between Liverpool and Man Utd, with the Red Devils chasing their first league title since Sir Alex Ferguson's final season in 2012-13.

And the two North West giants will go toe-to-toe on January 17 at Anfield in a potentially decisive six-pointer.

Klopp already kicked off the war of words by criticising Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side's knack for winning penalties, 12 days before kick-off.

Perhaps even more crucially, Liverpool travel to Old Trafford to take on United very late in the season.

The provisional date for the crunch clash is May 1, in gameweek 34 of 38.
