After some startling revelations from Phil Bardsley, of all people, via Jon Walters, the greatest manager to ever grace the Premier League could be set to face charges of treason at Old Trafford.
Walters appeared on BBC 5 Live's Football Daily on Sunday night, and while discussing the weekend's games he revealed the former Manchester United boss, Alex Ferguson, believes Liverpool are going to finally end their famine by landing the Premier League title.
Nevertheless, not wanting to heap too much praise on Jurgen Klopp's outfit, the 77-year-old apparently also believes his former club will have a massive say in the title race that looks like it could be decided on the final day of the season.
I was chatting with Phil Bardsley this week and - I'm going to drop a name here - he sat with Sir Alex Ferguson... and he thinks Liverpool are going to win it. He thinks Liverpool because he thinks United will get something out of the City game.
Only two points separate Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table, though the former have a game in hand and can therefore make up the deficit in the remaining games. City, however, have the considerably tougher run-in, facing Tottenham Hotspur and cross-city rivals United with both sides still in the hunt for the Champions League places.
City and Liverpool both won their games at the weekend ahead of pivotal Champions League clashes this week, with the Merseysiders getting over their toughest test of the run-in against Chelsea.
The game Ferguson believes could decide the title comes next Wednesday when City will be coming off the back of two challenging fixtures within a number of days against Spurs.
United, on the other hand, will have the benefit of home advantage after two away games to Barcelona and then Everton at the weekend.
