SkySports punditry duo Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher believe the title is heading for Manchester next season but are split on which club.

Speaking on SkySports News HQ's Morning View on Monday (8/8) at 11am, the duo were asked to give their pre-season predictions.

Carragher responded by naming his top four in order, insisting his former club Liverpool can get in, at the expense of Tottenham and Arsenal.

He said: "I think Manchester City will win the league, with Chelsea next, followed by Manchester United, and then Liverpool, with no Champions League football."

Liverpool finished second in the league in 2013/14, the last time they did not have European football as a distraction, and hopes are high under new manager Jurgen Klopp, who has been putting his squad together this summer, adding a number of new names.

Gary Neville, also in studio, named his top two, insisting that the Manchester clubs will be battling it out, and tipped his old team to reclaim the trophy for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

He said: "It's between City or United, I say United."

Graeme Souness was also in the studio with the pair, and asked to give his prediction he agreed with Neville that United are the top contenders along with City, but claiming Arsenal and Tottenham will complete the top four.

Arsenal and Spurs finished second and third last season and will consider it a big backwards step not to qualify for the Champions League again, per Carragher's prediction, while reigning champions Leicester City are not regarded as strong contenders by either of the trio.
