Jamie Carragher: Manchester City are better than Liverpool but not by miles

Jamie Carragher

Jamie Carragher comments on Premier League rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.

Jamie Carragher seems to be believe that Manchester City are not that much better than Liverpool.

The former Liverpool defender has established himself as a well-respected football pundit, but his belief that City are not better than the Reds by 'miles’ comes as a surprise.

At the moment, both City and Liverpool are struggling for form and have also suffered with inconsistencies so far this campaign.

However, there can be little doubt that it is Manuel Pellegrini’s side who have a better chance of rescuing their season.

City have one of the two strongest teams in the Premier League and are still within touching distance of leaders Chelsea.

Heading into this weekend’s round of matches, the Citizens find themselves six points off the pace, while Liverpool are way back in seventh place - 12 points behind Chelsea.

The Manchester outfit are set to finish in the top four at least; as for Liverpool, they may not even end up in the top six.

And that shows that City are ‘miles’ better than Liverpool.
