Paul Ince believes Liverpool FC will be Manchester City’s closest rivals in the Premier League title race next season.

The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League this season to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.

Liverpool FC were the first and one of only two teams to beat Premier League champions Manchester City in the Premier League this season.

The Reds were 4-3 winners against Manchester City at Anfield back in February, having led 4-1 in the second half before the Citizens’ late rally.

Liverpool FC eased to a 3-0 victory over the Eastlands outfit in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final before a 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City finished with a record 100 points in the Premier League this season and ended up a staggering 25 points ahead of Liverpool FC.

However, former Reds captain Ince believes Liverpool FC will be Manchester United’s closest rivals in the Premier League title race next term.

“Most people I speak to say the title next season is going to be between Manchester City and Liverpool – and I believe that says it all in terms of where Klopp’s vision is going and the position he has the club in at the minute,” Ince told Paddy Power.

Liverpool FC have never won the Premier League title but finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

The Reds haven’t won a top-flight title since 1990.

Graeme Souness, Roy Evans, Gerard Houllier, Rafael Benitez, Roy Hodgson, Kenny Dalglish and Brendan Rodgers have failed to restore the Reds to their former glory.
