A former Liverpool striker, Dean Saunders, has made some shocking revelations about this season’s Premier League title.
Saunder said Liverpool stand a chance of winning the EPL if Manchester City keep having injury problems.
He also said that Chelsea and Arsenal won’t be ruled out of the challenge, but need to work on their defence.
Chelsea and Arsenal are in stages of transition following managerial changes while Manchester United are on the verge of crisis following a disastrous summer and start to the season.
Tottenham failed to sign new players during the transfer window and a promising start was overshadowed by a shocking defeat to Watford before the international break.
Saunders expects City to retain their crown but fears the loss of Kevin De Bruyne for two months is likely to hinder them.
And Saunders believes injuries to their rivals, as well as the addition of strength in depth, could put Liverpool in pole position.
“I think Chelsea are doing well but the backline is not right yet,” he told Starsport.
“Arsenal as well, the backline’s not right.
“But Chelsea look going forward, they’re playing some good football, they’ve won four out of four.
“Liverpool, Man City and I think you can’t rule Spurs out completely.
“But it’s hard to back against Man City.
“If you had to pin me down, it’s hard to back against Man City but Liverpool have got a great chance if the likes of De Bruyne keep getting injured.
“If you take De Bruyne out of Man City for the season, how many points would they lose with him not being there?
“Or how many points does he win them with his assists and goals? So at some point with him being injured, it’s going to cost them.
“Man United at the start of the season, I might have said they’re in with a chance, maybe second, third.
“Looking at it at the minute, It might change, it does change as you go along.
“I thought Watford would struggle, they’ve won the first four games.”
