They cannot afford any more blunders – Carragher

Manchester City are the favorite to win the Premier League this season, according to Liverpool great Jamie Carragher.

Man City, according to Carragher, cannot afford to make any more mistakes when they return from this year’s FIFA Club World Cup.

He also forecasted how many points Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal would need to win the Premier League this season.

Liverpool presently leads the Premier League table, followed by Arsenal, Aston Villa, and Manchester City.

“This could be one of those seasons where a team wins the league with a point total in the mid-80s,” Carragher said to the Telegraph.

“In all but three of the last 10 seasons, the tally of the leaders after 16 games was higher than Liverpool’s going into this weekend.”

“No one is dismissing City just yet.” “They are still the favorites in my opinion,” the former England defender added.

“However, their slow start by their standards has given the others a chance, and their participation in the Club World Cup presents a golden opportunity for their competitors to open up a significant gap and generate some scoreboard pressure.”

“Even with games in hand, if City return from Saudi Arabia and find themselves 10 points behind, they will be thinking they cannot afford many more mistakes.”
