Matt Le Tissier believes Liverpool FC will be Manchester City’s biggest rivals in the Premier League title race this term.

The Citizens are looking to retain their top-flight crown under Pep Guardiola after the Spanish head coach got his hands on his first Premier League trophy last season.

Manchester City finished 19 points ahead of runners up Manchester United to highlight the clear gap between the Citizens and their title rivals in a one-sided campaign.

Liverpool FC placed in fourth spot and finished 25 points behind Manchester City, although the Reds knocked the Citizens out of the Champions League thanks to a 5-1 aggregate win in the quarter-finals.

The Merseyside outfit have signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho, RB Leipzig star Naby Keita, Stoke City playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri and AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker in the summer transfer window so far.

Former Southampton skipper Le Tissier believes Manchester City’s biggest competition will be Jurgen Klopp’s new-look Liverpool FC team.

“The gap is just too big to bridge for any of the teams below, but I do think it will be closer and I think Liverpool will be the team providing the main competition,” Le Tissier told Sky Sports.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth spot in the Premier League table to secure successive finishes in the Champions League qualification places under Klopp.

The Reds will start the new Premier League campaign with a clash against West Ham United at Anfield on Sunday.
