Steve Nicol still feels that Manchester City have a considerable advantage over Liverpool FC in the race for the Premier League title this season.

Liverpool FC have made a solid start to the new Premier League season and moved up to the top of the table on Saturday thanks to their 1-0 victory over West Ham United at Anfield.

The Reds are yet to concede a goal in the top flight and they have been earning plenty of praise for their solid displays so far this term under Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool FC are aiming to mount a serious Premier League title challenge this term as they look to try and establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the title.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are aiming to defend the trophy that they won in style under Pep Guardiola last season.

However, Liverpool FC legend Nicol feels that Manchester City have the considerable edge over Manchester City in the race for the title this term.

Speaking to ESPN FC, Nicol said: “The edge is the fact they [City] have already won the title.

“They have the experience. If Liverpool get themselves in the position, it could be too much for them. We know Man City can get it done.”

Liverpool FC will look to make it four wins in a row in the Premier League this weekend when they take on Leicester City on Saturday lunchtime.
