Former Liverpool striker Dean Saunders is stumped as to why neutrals might not want his former club to win the league – and suggested it might be down to jealousy. 

Liverpool are battling Manchester City for their first league title since 1990, and are currently two points clear of the champions having played one game more.

Saunders feels Liverpool, given their entertaining style of play and charismatic manager in Jurgen Klopp, should be backed by supporters of other clubs – and is shocked that they are not.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Saunders said: ‘I don’t get it. I can understand why people don’t like Man City, because they think they have bought the title.

‘They think rich people have come in and lifted City to the top. I’m not saying they’re right, but that’s the reason.

‘Why would you not like Liverpool? I’m not saying that because my dad played for them and I played for them. What is there to not like?

‘The manager is a decent bloke, the club have won everything the right way, they don’t lump it, they’re not aggressive – OK, you’ve got Luis Suarez and Graeme Souness.

‘Maybe it’s because Bill Shankly has put the club on its road, taken over by Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Kenny Dalglish, maybe people don’t like that, perhaps they are a bit jealous. Because of the way Liverpool have come right through the history of football, and then there are other teams who have just arrived there through cash.’

Beneath the video of Saunders’ comments, posted by TalkSPORT to Twitter, fans gave their reasons for not wanting Liverpool to win the Premier League.

Many suggested they would find gloating Reds supporters too unbearable, while others felt it was the assumptions of former players in the media – such as Saunders – that made the title going to Anfield unpalatable.

However other neutrals suggested they are indeed supporting Klopp’s team, while some said they simply wanted the best team out of Liverpool and City to triumph.

Liverpool have four games remaining in the league season – trips to Cardiff and Newcastle, and home fixtures with Huddersfield and Wolves.
