Liam Gallagher of Beady Eye has said that he'll move back to Manchester if his football team Manchester City win the Premier League.

London resident Gallagher made the comment when speaking to radio station Talksport about the Manchester City v Manchester United match which is taking place tonight (April 30).

The former Oasis man also said to ITV News that he believes if City win tonight's local derby at Etihad Stadium, they will win the league. He said:

If we beat United tonight we can go on to win the league but United are a mega team and we will have to wait and see, but the guys are going to be earning their money tonight.


He added that after Arsenal beat City two weeks ago, he thought his team's changes were over. He explained: "I got back from Disneyland with the kids and we got beat by Arsenal so we were eight points behind and I was getting loads of grief from United fans in Disneyland. Even Daffy Duck I think is a secret Red, he was having a pop, so I thought it was well and truly over then."

Earlier this year Gallagher confirmed that Beady Eye will finally play Oasis songs live this summer. The band, who Gallagher formed after Noel left Oasis in 2009, have so far avoided playing anything but their own songs and covers during gigs.

Noel has regularly played Oasis songs live, including the likes of 'Don't Look Back In Anger' and 'Half The World Away', which were both in his setlist when he played at the NME Awards in February to celebrate being given this year's Godlike Genius award.

Liam has now said Beady Eye will follow suit and include Oasis songs in their set at Japan's Fuji Festival in July. He told XFM: "We're doing Fuji Festival in Japan, which is in July. And we will be dropping Oasis songs for anyone who's bothered.”

Gallagher continued: "The time is right now, without a doubt. We were always going to do it, but we thought the [Beady Eye] album needed to stand on its own. We've done some good gigs, we've done some shit gigs. And it's time to drop them in now. Everyone else is. I feel they're just as much my songs as they are Noel's. And if people don't like it, go to the bar or fuck off. If they do like it, jump up and down, let's have a good time."
