Danny Mills has insisted that Brighton striker Glenn Murray can be Liverpool’s title saviour in the Premier League finale this weekend.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England defender claimed Murray is an “outstanding” player who can still have a big say in the outcome of the title race.
Manchester City will secure their second consecutive league if they win at Brighton on Sunday, while Liverpool be victorious if they overcome Wolves at home and Pep Guardiola’s side fail to take all three points.
Mills highlighted how a 35-year-old could be the most important player on what promises to be a thrilling end to what has been a remarkable tussle between City and Liverpool.
“Murray is outstanding,” Mills told Football Insider. “I was a Brighton for the Manchester United game and he was was outstanding. He is a fabulous player in and around the box.
“This could be a wonderful finish to the season for Brighton. They have nothing to play for, but they will be under no pressure and that could help them. Suddenly, the players can go out there and relax, maybe try one or two things they wouldn’t normally do.
“Man City will have to slip up for Liverpool to be champions, but the most important thing for Liverpool is to do their job and beat Wolves. They are a good side and it’s not easy to beat Wolves.”
Murray has followed up his 14-goal 2017-18 campaign for Brighton with another 14 goals in all competitions this season, with 12 of them coming in the league.
The veteran forward has a remarkable record for the Seagulls, netting 108 goals from 260 matches across two spells for the club.
