Jose Mourinho believes Liverpool FC and Manchester City will be the only teams competing for the Premier League title this season.

The Reds are currently sitting at the top of the Premier League table thanks to four successive victories to start the new season.

Liverpool FC were 3-0 winners against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Chris Wood’s own-goal.

Manchester City are two points adrift of the Premier League leaders despite their 4-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Liverpool FC are already five points ahead of Arsenal, while Chelsea FC, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are seven points adrift of the Champions League winners.

And former Manchester United manager Mourinho now believes that it’s already clear that Liverpool FC and Manchester City are involved in a two-horse race for the Premier League title.

“I think both [Arsenal and Tottenham needed the points]. We were having a laugh at Old Trafford in the first fixture of the season,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“I was having the joke of Man City B, Spurs, Liverpool and Man City [challenging for the title].

“Just three or four weeks later, we understand clearly Liverpool and Man City are going to finish first and second, or second and first.

“Can Tottenham or Arsenal be there? They push for it, I think today is very important for them to win.

“If they don’t do it, the distance just after four weeks is the distance that impresses a little bit.”

Liverpool FC finished in second place in the Premier League table last season and a point adrift of champions Manchester City.

The Reds suffered one defeat throughout the 2018-19 Premier League campaign – a 2-1 loss at Manchester City back in January.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won the Premier League title in the last two seasons to exert their dominance.

Liverpool FC beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 to win the Champions League title last term.
