Jake Paul has claimed Liverpool‘s title showdown with Manchester City is a ‘toss-up’ but backed the Reds to triumph. 

Jurgen Klopp‘s side travel to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday for a first vs second clash which will likely decide which side takes the Premier League crown this season.

Paul admitted City’s ‘home field’ advantage would help but nonetheless claimed the visitors and star forward Mohamed Salah would end up victorious.

He tweeted saying: ‘Man City Vs Liverpool is a toss up. City has home field…but Liverpool on fire at the moment. 

‘I’m putting my bet on The Reds and @mosalah’.

The 25-year-old’s post to his 4.2million followers, posted shortly after 2pm, has already been liked more than 20,000 times.

Before the game City sat top of the table by just a single point, having been 14 points clear of Liverpool in mid-January.

But Liverpool closed the gap and will go first in the league if they win. 

Paul was later criticised by sports fans for using unusual US terminology like ‘home field,’ presumably a motivation for him to later tweet a response.

He added: ‘FACTS: We call Football Soccer in America because of Brits. Brits invented the term soccer, we just picked it up and then created our own Football’.
