Carragher predicts team to win title after Man City, Liverpool wins


Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has backed Manchester City to win the Premier League “comfortably”.

Carragher also admitted he doesn’t think Liverpool are “quite there” to challenge City.

City crushed Manchester United 3-0 on Sunday, hours after the Reds beat Nottingham by the same margin at Anfield.

The champions have moved up to third, level on points with second-place Arsenal and two behind leaders Tottenham.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are fourth and one point worse off than City, having won seven, drawn two and lost one from their opening 10 top-flight matches.

“I’ve got the feeling with City when I was coming up against Gary [Neville] and Roy [Keane], where even if Manchester United in years go by weren’t top at this stage, it’s almost if they are getting ready for the second half of the season,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“That today, a big game, put on a show to let people know how good they are, they are still the team to beat. I think they’ll win the league comfortably this season, I do! I don’t think Liverpool are quite ready to mount a serious challenge.

“Arsenal, of course did that last season, and even though they’ve made a good start, I don’t think they are playing as well as this time last season, so I don’t think everything is 100 percent there.”
