Paul Merson has tipped Manchester City to beat Liverpool FC to the Premier League title this season.

The Reds enjoyed a positive summer transfer window after Jurgen Klopp addressed some areas of weakness.

Liverpool FC bolstered their midfield with the addition of AS Monaco star Fabinho in a £39m deal.

Naby Keita completed a £48m switch to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig from Liverpool FC after agreeing a fee in 2017.

Liverpool FC managed to land Stoke City playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri in a £13.5m deal amid interest from Manchester United.

The Reds signed Brazil number one Alisson Becker in a £67m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma back in August.

Former Arsenal star Merson believes the Citizens will edge Liverpool FC in what promises to be an enthralling title race.

Merson told Sky Sports: “I know Stuart Pearce said Liverpool are going to win the title, but I’m still going for Man City, all day long, and probably by double digits.”

Liverpool FC were 4-0 winners against West Ham United in their season opener at Anfield before a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace on Monday night.

The Reds haven’t won the Premier League title but finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

Manchester City beat Liverpool FC to the Premier League title in 2014 after Brendan Rodgers’ side had led the table with three games to go.
