The Premier League title race is set to go right to the wire with Manchester City and Liverpool virtually neck-and-neck at the top of the table.
City currently sit one point clear of the Reds in pole position with eight matches of the campaign left to play.
The bookmakers have Pep Guardiola’s men priced as the narrow favourites - but are they about to fall at the final hurdle because of… Drake?
At this point we imagine you’re wondering how the Canadian rapper could possibly have any bearing on the Premier League title race.
But if you’re aware of the ‘Drake Curse’ then it’ll already make sense.
We were unaware of this but apparently the Drake Curse - or ‘The Curse of Drake’, if you’d prefer - is an actual thing.
Whenever the rapper declares his support for a team or sporting star, the team or sporting star in question tends to lose.
The University of Kentucky and Toronto Raptors basketball teams, plus the University of Alabama American football team have all suffered losses after posing for photos with Drake.
He was also Conor McGregor’s hype man at the UFC 229 weigh-ins - but it was Khabib Nurmagomedov who emerged victorious.
Oh, and he also posed with Daniel Sturridge before the wheels came off of Liverpool’s 2013-14 Premier League title challenge.
And now Man City are in danger of being affected by the Drake Curse after Sergio Aguero posed with Drake at the Manchester Arena on Sunday as the rapper began his two-month European tour.
Aguero, clearly unaware of the curse, may have inadvertently handed the title to Liverpool.
We joke, of course, although you can guarantee this will be the suggestion on social media if Jurgen Klopp’s side pip City to the title in May.
Perhaps Pep should quickly get on the phone to Drake and make him wear a similar jumper to this one…
Ahead of a weekend with two NFL Championship games, the rapper kept everyone happy by wearing a jumper with all four teams on it.News Now - Sport News
