Newcastle United legend, Alan Shearer, has predicted Manchester City to win the Premier League title this season.

Shearer believes Man City will win the English top-flight title ahead of Liverpool this season again because of Haaland.

According to him, Haaland, who joined Man City from Dortmund, will score at least 30 goals for Pep Guardiola’s side this term.

Recall that Man City won the Premier League title last season with a point ahead of second position Liverpool.

“Even just watching them in the Community Shield and seeing the body language of Jurgen Klopp and his team in that game, you can see they are up for the fight again. Only one point separated them in the end last time, and it is going to be incredibly tight this season too,” Shearer told BBC Sport.

“If I had to choose a winner now, it would be City – just about – because of Erling Haaland. They won the title without him last year and without using a real centre-forward. Now, they have got one who could and should score a minimum of 30 goals this season.”
