Published Add your comment

The current focus may well be on the international break, but fans of Manchester United and Liverpool will already be thinking about their upcoming battle. 

The Red Devils and Liverpool are set to go head-to-head at Anfield on Monday, October 17 in what looks set to be one of the biggest games of the Premier League campaign so far. 

Liverpool, of course, have enjoyed a fine start to the season and will head into the game full of confidence. Jose Mourinho and co., meanwhile, will be determined to secure all three points on Merseyside after a topsy-turvy start to the campaign.

But are both clubs serious title challengers? Manchester City, despite succumbing to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of north London outfit Tottenham in their last fixture, are the current favourites to secure the prestigious prize, but United and Liverpool could yet have their say between now and the end of the season. 

Who, then, does Liverpool legend - and Sky Sports pundit - Jamie Carragher think are more likely to win the title at this stage?

United vs Liverpool 

Well, despite insisting that it would be foolish to write United off, he's admitted that Liverpool are currently in a greater position to challenge with the likes of City and co. at the summit of the division. 


"It probably feels like that [Liverpool more likely to win title than United] now, because of how Liverpool have started the season, but it was only two or three days ago we were saying it was going to be a shoot-out for the league between United and City," Carragher told Sky Sports News HQ.

"I still think United will be right up there come the end of the season, the manager has got great experience of winning the Premier League, so I certainly wouldn't write Manchester United off at such an early stage.

"I think them, and hopefully Liverpool, will be up there fighting for the title."

Jamie Carragher was speaking at a 23 Foundation charity match at Bootle FC where a team of Liverpool legends, including John Barnes and Jason McAteer, took on a select XI, who paid to pay against their heroes.
