Former Premier League stars, Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher, have identified Manchester City as the ‘team to beat’ in the English top-flight league this season ahead of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.
Keane and Carragher stated this following Man City’s Premier League 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
“It’s about the managers as well, Pep Guardiola’s track record is mind-boggling, he knows how to win football matches,” Keane told Sky Sports.
“They are a hard team to beat. Liverpool will no doubt be in the mix because they have lots of goal scorers.
“They conceded three against Brentford and two today, so that doesn’t look great, but they have got brilliant players going forward, world-class players.
“I still think all of these teams, Chelsea included, will do well to finish ahead of Man City.”
On his part, Carragher added: “Man City are the team to beat. The game last week against Chelsea was a big one for me.
“It was a complete domination and it was similar for periods today in that first half. For me, they are the team to beat.”
