Chris Sutton still believes that Manchester City are going to be the main title challengers this season but he is tipping Liverpool FC to push the Citizens all the way.

Liverpool FC have made a solid start to the new campaign and they notched up their second successive Premier League win on Monday night when they sealed a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are aiming to be one of the main title challengers this season after having so far failed to win a trophy under Klopp since his appointment back in 2015.

Manchester City are the clear favourites to win the title this season and they have been earning plenty of praise for their strong performances, after also having won their opening two games.

Sutton feels that Pep Guardiola’s men will still be the team to beat this season, but he admits that Liverpool FC look more than capable of running them close.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live, Sutton said: “I still think Man City are the team to beat but it is good signs for Liverpool.

“It is going to be one hell of a title race.”

Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action on Saturday evening when they host Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield.

The Reds finished fourth last season and also earned plenty of praise as they reached the Champions League final before losing to Real Madrid back in May.
