Neil Warnock Perfectly Predicted How Liverpool's Season Would Go

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock didn't manage to pull off any magic in order to keep his team in the Premier League but his sorcery did lead him to tell the future of Liverpool's season back in October.

Predicting what's going to happen at any sports event is difficult because it's generally unpredictable. Even when one side is a big favourite there's far from a guarantee they'll come out as a winner, just ask Anthony Joshua.

Working out what's going to happen over the entirety of a season is an even more difficult thing to do. Sure Huddersfield Town, Fulham and Cardiff City would have been amongst the favourites to go down and Manchester City the favourites to win the Premier League but it's far more nuanced than that.

However it seems that Neil Warnock doesn't need any help when it comes to predictions, unless he got his hands on the Time Stone from Doctor Strange.

Back in September his Cardiff side had lost to Pep Guardiola's team and a month later they lost to Liverpool. The two sides were already locked in a title race and Warnock was asked how he saw Liverpool's season going.

The 70 year old reckoned that Jurgen Klopp's side would fall just short in the league but it would be 'their year' in the Champions League:

Warnock couldn't have been much more spot on with Liverpool going on to win the league by one point to City before going on to lift the Champions League, after beating Spurs in the final on Saturday.

The win on October 27th put Klopp's side three points clear of Guardiola's men, although the reigning champions had a game in hand, and Chelsea were still in the mix two points behind the eventual league runners up.

Warnock should have been looking out for his own team with the Bluebirds only on five points and out of the relegation zone only on goal difference.

The Welsh side couldn't turn things around and ended up on just 34 points at the end of the season, getting relegated by two points.

It could take some more Warnock magic to get Cardiff back into the top tier next season, although no one expected he'd get them promoted in the first place.
