Ince: Guardiola will prevent Liverpool winning league

Former Liverpool midfielder Paul Ince says Manchester City will continue to dominate the Premier League while Pep Guardiola remains in charge.

Ince insists Liverpool will not win the Premier League while Guardiola is in charge of City.

He told BT Sport: "As long as Pep is at City, they won't win it. If Pep was to move, then I think Liverpool have more chance of winning it.

"I don't want that to happen because (Jurgen) Klopp has done a fabulous job, but he's so reliant on the front three. He's brought Xherdan Shaqiri in and not given him enough game-time.

"If Roberto Firmino is injured who comes in? Divock Origi was on loan in Belgium [sic] so he's not going to play week in, week out.

"The City team is world class, Liverpool could add two or three to that. They can always keep challenging but I don't think they've got enough to beat them."
