Jamie Redknapp and Micah Richards make title prediction

Chelsea’s defeat to West Ham on Saturday now means that the Blues have lost their grip at the top of the table.

Manchester City and Liverpool won their respective games this weekend, to drop Chelsea down to third in the league.

City are currently top of the table and are favourites to win the league for the second season running, while Liverpool are currently 2nd.

Former Premier League stars Jamie Redknapp and Micah Richards have given their title predictions after match week 15.

“Man City are a joy to watch right now,” Redknapp told Sky Sports after City’s 3-1 win over Watford.

“I would say that they and Liverpool are just ahead of Chelsea right now as favourites in this race.”

Meanwhile, Richards thinks that all three teams remain in the hunt for the title, but added that his former club City could run away with it if they sign a striker in January.

“We have three top managers competing this season for the title and we all love to see the competitive nature at the top of the table that has been missing for a couple of years now,” he added.

“By wanting to buy a striker in the summer – people say they need one but when they had Aguero, he didn’t play every game.

“But a striker would be taking more of these chances. That’s just the fact of it.

“They need that clinical edge in front of goal. Especially against the big teams. You need to put them away. That could be the difference in the big games.”
