Liverpool-Manchester City prediction: Who has Premier League title edge

Though Manchester City is in fourth ahead of a visit to league-leading Liverpool FC at Anfield, the reigning champions' place in the table is merely a technicality.

Liverpool accumulated more points last season (97) than any other team that failed to win the title, but the Reds picked up a UEFA Champions League crown for their troubles.

The timing is right for Liverpool to beat City and ultimately win the club's first Premier League title, considering how strong Jurgen Klopp's squad is.

Klopp also is 8-2-7 all-time against Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola in all competitions, surely replacing José Mourinho as the former FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich gaffer's biggest rival.

Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne are singular talents to be sure, but the Cityzens' petroleum-fueled depth is what separates them from the rest of England -- and Europe, frankly.

Liverpool has a slight edge in form and will be boosted by Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson's absence , but the Reds' league results have been too close for comfort.
