Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly backing Liverpool to pip Manchester City to the Premier League title this season.

The Merseyside club are chasing their first title since 1990 as the season comes towards its conclusion and lead reigning champions City by two points, having played a game more.

And, according to former Stoke City forward Jonathan Walters, Ferguson believes that Liverpool will end their long wait to return to the top of English football as City have the tougher run-in.

“I was chatting with Phil Bardsley and I'm gonna drop a name here, he was sat with Sir Alex Ferguson,” Walters told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Football Daily Podcast.

“He sat with him and he thinks Liverpool are going win it. He thinks Liverpool because he thinks United will get something out of the City game.”

Bardsley, who played alongside Walters for at Stoke and now represents Burnley, began his career under Ferguson at Old Trafford, but left in 2008 to join Sunderland.
