Liverpool could have problems beating Bournemouth

The BT Sport pundit answers the week's big questions

Jurgen Klopp had a strop after the Merseyside derby
1 of 1

What’s your best bet for the weekend?
Crystal Palace had an amazing result against Watford on Tuesday, but they face a difficult trip to Leicester.

I’ve been really impressed with the way the Foxes have been playing in the last few weeks and they are a dangerous team.

They are capable of troubling anyone in the league, especially at the King Power, and they can continue their progress against the Eagles.

Which favourites look most vulnerable?
Liverpool are going through a bit of a tough time after draws against Everton and West Brom and I’m not too keen on their chances at Bournemouth.

The Cherries haven’t won in five games but it is a difficult place to visit and when they turn it on, they can cause problems. Bournemouth can get at least a draw.

How do you see Manchester City v Tottenham going?
I’ll go for 2-1 Manchester City.

Tottenham have had some decent results against City in the past couple of seasons and I’ve got fond memories of the Etihad as we qualified for the Champions League there in 2010.

I can see Tottenham scoring but the loss of both Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez could end up costing them.

How many trophies will City win this season?
Two. The league title looks to be in the bag already – I just can’t see them slipping up enough to give anyone else a chance.

I fancy them to win one of the other cups but I think they might just be one season away from being the best team in Europe.

They should get there, but I think they will have to wait for their first Champions League success.

Who’s your fancy to win the Champions League?
Manchester City are the best of the English sides but Barcelona and Real Madrid should get stronger as the competition progresses.

Madrid have been handed a tough draw against Paris St-Germain and it could be that the winners of that tie go all the way. I find it really hard to separate them.

Where’s the best chance of an upset in the League Cup quarter-finals?
Arsene Wenger will be desperate to win a trophy so I would expect him to pick a strong Arsenal line-up against West Ham.

Leicester could definitely give Manchester City plenty to think about if Guardiola’s boys are not on the ball.
