Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea will compete for the Premier League title this season, according to Ryan Giggs.
Pep Guardiola’s City stormed to the title last season – racking up 100 points and scoring over 100 goals – and have made an impressive start to the new campaign.
After six games of the new season, Manchester City are second in the Premier League, two points behind leaders Liverpool.
The Reds are the only team yet to drop a point this term and Giggs believes they will challenge City as they attempt to defend the title.
And the Manchester United legend also says Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea should not be discounted after a promising start.
‘It looks like a case of Manchester City v Liverpool for the title, although you can’t dismiss Chelsea because they’re playing well,’ Giggs told Sky Sports.
‘Remember just two years ago they were the champions and they’ve got players in that dressing room who know what it takes – Liverpool haven’t got that, but you’ve got to start somewhere and Liverpool have been impressive.
‘As for Man City, I watched them against Lyon and you think something might be wrong and then they go and put on a show against Cardiff.
‘So I’d say it was between those two but you can’t discount Chelsea.
‘I’d still just give Manchester City the edge purely because Pep Guardiola usually wins second season after winning the league and they’ve got players who’ve been there and done it.’
Despite losing to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup during the week, Liverpool have made a fine start to the new season to emerge as the early pace setters in the Premier League.
And Giggs says the form of Jurgen Klopp’s team is ‘scary’. They face Chelsea once again this weekend.
‘From 1-11 there’s probably not been a better Liverpool team in the Premier League – when Raheem Sterling, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge were on fire they were really impressive but probably overall it looks like a more balanced team now,’ he added.
