Unlike the Blues who have stuttered in recent weeks, both Liverpool and City have been enjoying a fine run of results, with the former winning six straight top-flight matches.

While there is little separating the three frontrunners, Cascarino contends City are on course to retaining the Premier League crown.

The former Blues striker further claimed triumph by Pep Guardiola's side will be by a great margin of at least 10 points.

"If Liverpool finish above City, I think it would be their biggest achievement in recent history because City are an exceptional team," Cascarino told talkSPORT.
"I think it’ll be a major achievement if Liverpool can even keep pace with them because I just can’t see Man City going into games and losing," he added.
