Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has named Liverpool as their biggest challengers.
The Reds have begun this season badly and are 14 points behind league leaders, Arsenal.
And although City are one point behind the Gunners, Guardiola believes that Liverpool have what it takes to bounce back and fight for the title.
He told a press conference on Friday: “Liverpool always have been our biggest challengers and they will be now.
“Being in the position that we are, with the World Cup, anything can happen.
“Liverpool have a good team. Of course, the crowd was involved in the stadium but they have a good team.”
