Last season was a two-horse race between Manchester City and Liverpool.

Manchester City won the league with 93 points, with Liverpool finishing with a point behind them.

Next season will be a tougher one, as Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are recruiting well, with Manchester United expected to do same under new manager Erik ten Hag.

However, Manchester United legend Roy Keane has claimed he doesn’t see Chelsea and the rest fighting for the title.

“I don’t think they will close the gap,” Keane told Sky Bet.

“I think they will be a bit better. They have quality and the recruitment, but you can’t look beyond Liverpool and Man City.”

On Manchester United’s chances, he added: “The manager no doubt will be given money to spend, how he recruits, four or five experienced players have left the club, which I think is a good thing.

“But I still don’t see United competing with Liverpool and Manchester City, not just yet.”

Former Chelsea skipper John Terry has revealed he’s backing City to win the league next season, especially with their signing of Erling Haaland.

Terry said: “Man City are too good in my opinion. Haaland will be huge for them.”
