Jamie Carragher still considers Manchester City to be “favourites” to win the Premier League title this season.
City pipped Liverpool by a solitary point to claim their second consecutive crown in 2018/19, and will hope to become only the fifth team to win England’s top flight three times in a row.
Liverpool have already established a two-point lead atop the table with the help of a record 13 straight league victories that started last campaign.
But Carragher still thinks City “are the best team”, and that both “will have a substantial gap” by Christmas.
“I think it’s a bit early yet. I think we’ve got to probably wait until Christmas,” Carragher said.
“I do feel around about Christmas time Liverpool and City will have a substantial gap and it looks like there’s a little bit of a gap at this moment.
“But I still think City are favourites and are the best team in the Premier League at this moment because they won the Premier League and they proved that last season.
“So, I think it’s still on Liverpool to overtake City but they’re more than capable.”
