Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has made a bold prediction in the Premier League title race.

Rafa Benitez has backed Manchester City to retain the Premier League title this season.

Following Sunday's surprising defeats for Arsenal and Liverpool against Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, Manchester City have surged ahead, now leading by two points in the Premier League standings.

With six matches remaining for all three teams, Rafa Benitez believes there will be further dropped points, but he's confident that Pep Guardiola's squad will ultimately win the title.

Speaking on Sky Sports, he said:

“Manchester City are playing with a lot of confidence. They have a good squad – they can change three or four players and still win easily.

“Can I see them making similar mistakes as Liverpool and Arsenal did this weekend? Yes, I can. But at the same time, the others could make mistakes so I think City have a great advantage.

"I watched both games and Liverpool had some bad luck because they had some great chances.“
