The UEFA Champions League (UCL) is only at the Round of 16 stages and legendary Manchester City and Liverpool goalkeeper David James already seems to have made his predictions for the finale. The Englishman believes that his two former sides are more than capable of going all the way considering the outstanding improvement that both sides have had under Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, respectively.

David James makes UEFA Champions League finals prediction

On being asked what he believes were the prospects of his two former sides in the UEFA Champions League, David James told Republic World in a conference call, “What about Manchester City vs Liverpool final. Either team. It is not about who I prefer or if I have any favourites. I look at what Pep Guardiola has been doing this season more so than any other season. He has been rotating the squad so well.” The former goalkeeper went on to add that because of the exceptional improvement that the Citizens have had under the Spanish coach, the club is more than capable of going all the way to the finals and perhaps even winning it.

As for Liverpool, James said, “Again, I think you got a side who at times around Christmas were struggling a little bit. But they have come out of that. The success they have had without (Mohamed) Salah and (Sadio) Mane because of the African Cup of Nations makes them a confident side. The English pundit again added that if he looks at the Reds and what they were doing under Jurgen Klopp, they were more than capable of going to the finals.
