Rooney has backed his old rivals to win the league title this season ahead of Man City.
Former Manchester United and Everton striker Wayne Rooney has backed former rivals Liverpool to win the Premier League title this season.
As we enter the second international break of the 2019-20 campaign, the Reds lead the Premier League table with eight points after they beat Leicester City 2-1 yesterday, while Manchester City suffered their second loss of the season to Wolverhampton on Sunday.
However, the Toffees legend is convinced Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are favourite to win the league ahead of City.
"In my opinion, Liverpool look the strongest," Rooney said during an interview with IFL TV, cited by HITC. "City are a fantastic team.
"I think Liverpool have improved on last year, whereas City have stayed at that level of great consistency, so I think Liverpool."
