Gary Neville fired a Premier League warning to Liverpool following Manchester City’s Carabao Cup win over Manchester United.
And Neville believes City’s form means they are Liverpool’s most serious challengers for the Premier League title, despite United being in their “eye line”.
Discussing the title race on Sky Sports, Neville said: “They’re a dangerous proposition. Liverpool dropped points on Monday night and obviously from a Manchester United point of view we had a little bit of a smile.
“But Manchester City players, having played like they did at Chelsea, they’ll be the ones in the background thinking ‘that was a good three points dropped for us because we know we can win this title, we know we can beat that Liverpool team’.
“Liverpool are making mistakes and they needed to make mistakes to allow City back in. If they play like that they’re a dangerous proposition. They’ve got three games at home now and they’re the ones who’ll cause Liverpool problems.
“Manchester United are immediately in their eye line, but City are there just lurking and playing like that they’re going to be really dangerous.”
