Jamie Carragher names two reasons why Liverpool could beat City to Premier League title

"Two things, look Man City are favourites, I think most people in the room would think City would win the league," Jamie Carragher said on the Overlap YouTube channel.

"I think, there's a couple of things that I’m maybe hanging on to with Liverpool is the fact that, I think once Virgil van Dijk was up to speed last season – you got the first three or four months out of the season – in the second half of the season, him and the goalkeeper [Alisson Becker] were absolutely what you would expect them to be and what they've been for the last three or four years.

"If you get them [Liverpool] at their best, at the very sort of start at the season, and don't forget, every season van Dijk has been at Liverpool a full season, Liverpool have got over 90 points and the other thing is that Liverpool have got sort of three or four top players.

"I don’t know about City to be honest; it might be the same, not going to the World Cup. So, Luis Díaz is not going, [Mohamed] Salah’s not going.

"I don't really know City, but there's a few decent players sort of from Liverpool I think, you know, could that make a difference in the second half of the season."

Liverpool have a number of injuries coming into the season but crucially, none of the irreplaceable players is ruled out for too long.

As for the effect of the World Cup, we'll only truly find out about it in the second part of the season, after the competition takes place in Qatar with plenty of Premier League players involved.
