Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher have made their Premier League predictions for the season.

Both pundits have backed Manchester City to win the Premier League title this season with Chelsea coming second.

“Man City are Man City,” Carragher told Sky Sports. “Liverpool are the team that broke their spell up once in the last four of five years. It will take a lot for them to do it again, but it took them a lot to do it last time.

“They (City) had unbelievable consistency, right now they’re on the back of a victory. You’re thinking what they could do next week. With Harry Kane they’re very difficult to stop. If they don’t get it, it’s much more tough as you’ve got Chelsea in there.

“They didn’t have (Sergio) Aguero last season. In some ways it was Pep’s perfect way of playing, having a team of midfielders. They didn’t have consistent strikers but Pep will want a top quality centre forward in that team.”

Neville added: “You’ve got to go with Man City with what they’ve done the in the last few years. Chelsea and Manchester United have something to prove, Liverpool have to get back up to the level they were at.

“City have been at the highest level, there’s a question of Aguero going and not being replaced. But they have lots of 10s, 15s, 17s that could contribute to getting goals.”
