Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs has predicted that Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are still favourite to retain the Premier League title this season, despite an impressive start to the new campaign from Liverpool.
Guardiola’s men won the English topflight league last season with a record 100 points from 38 games.
Giggs, however, believes the managerial skills of Guardiola give City an advantage in the title race ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s men and Chelsea.
“It looks like a case of Manchester City vs Liverpool for the title, although you can’t dismiss Chelsea because they’re playing well,” Giggs told Sky Sports.
“Remember just two years ago they were the champions and they’ve got players in that dressing room who knows what it takes – Liverpool haven’t got that, but you’ve got to start somewhere and Liverpool have been impressive.
“As for Man City, I watched them against Lyon and you think something might be wrong and then they go and put on a show against Cardiff. So I’d say it was between those two but you can’t discount Chelsea.
“I’d still just give Manchester City the edge purely because Pep Guardiola usually wins second season after winning the league and they’ve got players who’ve been there and done it.”
