Former Manchester City player Micah Richards has revealed that he expects Pep Guardiola’s side to challenge for the Premier League title.
Currently the Citizens’ are 2nd in the league table with 8 points behind the leaders Liverpool, who have won eight out of the eight games so far during this season.
“They only thing I fear for Liverpool is if they pick up a couple of injuries,” Richards told Radio 5 Live.
“Man City are a bit short in the defensive area at the moment but as a contrast if Liverpool lost Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino they would just not be the same team.
“Over the course of the season, I think City will get stronger. During the last 10 games there is so much pressure to perform and people make mistakes.
“If City are in touching distance by seven or eight points come February and March, I think it would be a good ride towards the end of the season.”
