Jamie Carragher has backed Manchester City to comfortably win the Premier League ahead of Liverpool and Arsenal this season.
The Cityzens had a poor run before the international break with back-to-back league defeats to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal.
They have responded with wins over Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester United. Against the latter, they were truly dominant.
Speaking after the 3-0 derby win, Carragher said that City are still the team to bet and they will win the league in a comfortable fashion.
The centre-back added that Liverpool are not ready to mount a serious challenge while everything isn’t quite right for Arsenal.
He told Sky Sports: “City are still the team to beat. I think they’ll win the league and win it comfortably. I don’t think Liverpool are quite ready to mount a serious challenge and everything isn’t quite there for Arsenal.”
City have climbed to third in the standings after the victory over United. They host Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium next weekend.
Pep Guardiola‘s side have found momentum after a poor league run and they will be aiming to go on a long winning streak hereon.
