Matt Le Tissier is backing Manchester City to pip Liverpool FC to the Premier League title once again this season.

The Reds ended up a single point behind champions Manchester City last term as Pep Guardiola’s men managed to defend their Premier League crown.

Liverpool FC will now have their sights set on pushing Manchester City for the title once again this term as they aim to try and win the Premier League for the first time under Jurgen Klopp.

The Merseyside outfit did experience their first taste of silverware last term when they beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 to win the Champions League back in June.

However, former Southampton star Le Tissier feels that Manchester City are poised to come out on top in the Premier League title race once again this season.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Le Tissier said: “Manchester City have strengthened and Liverpool haven’t. I think City will win it by five or six points this season.”

He added: “Tottenham will be third. Tanguy Ndombele should make a big difference to them but I don’t see them challenging the top two.

“City and Liverpool are still too good for them at the moment.”

Manchester City will get their Premier League campaign under way with a trip to West Ham United on Saturday lunchtime.

Liverpool FC are next in action when they take on Chelsea FC in the Uefa Super Cup on Wednesday night in Istanbul.

The Reds will then play Southampton away from home on Saturday 17 August.
