Can they beat Liverpool to the Premier League title and lift the silverware for the third season in a row?
Manchester City remain the team to beat – they have showed resilience, brilliance and have bolstered their squad as well. Liverpool will try to end what will be a 30-year wait for the title after falling agonizingly short despite losing only one league game last season, to the eventual champions. They may not have made significant changes to their squad however, they still have the services of their World-class stars to fight to the finish line.
