Liverpool and Manchester City have been the dominant sides in the Premier League over the past four to five years.

Liverpool and City fought hard for the Premier League title until the last day of last season.

Man City got 93 points last season, while Liverpool got 92 points, while Chelsea ended way behind with 73 points.

Liverpool and Man City are the favourites to win the league this season, but Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel thinks otherwise.

According to the former Manchester United goalkeeper, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal will challenge Man City and Liverpool for the league title, as he claims that Liverpool and City are trying to build their squad.

“It is not going to be as plain sailing for Manchester City and Liverpool as people think. For both, it’s going to be a very different season,” Schmeichel told The Times.

“A massive transition, in terms of the playing style, is taking place at City. Look at Pep Guardiola’s transfer business: signing Erling Haaland and letting Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus go.

“That tells you how committed he is to playing with a No 9 and we haven’t seen that with Pep before.

“How’s that going to play out? How long is that going to take to bed in? Will Haaland be as good in the Premier League as in Germany? I’m not sure. Will he score 25 goals? Yes, if the team service him. But City are not used to playing that way.

“Liverpool are also changing. They signed Darwin Nunez but lost Sadio Mane. Is Nunez going to be as good as Mane? I wonder.

“The competition will come from Chelsea, and from Spurs, who have signed well and in Antonio Conte have a very clever manager who is so good at getting the maximum out of his players.

“I’m also looking Arsenal and for the first time in a long time thinking ‘top four’

“Manchester United? Pre-season has been promising but the reality is that a long process of transition is required.

“The club have backed Erik ten Hag in recruiting players he knows and wanted to work worth, and his first season will be fascinating.”
