After nine Premier League matches, Liverpool have accumulated 20 points. As a result, Liverpool are currently second in the Premier League.

Manchester City on the other hand have accumulated 12 points after eight Premier League matches. The Citizens are 13th in the Premier League.

With that being the case, Manchester City are currently eight points behind Liverpool.

Despite that being the case, former Red Jamie Carragher is backing (00:49) Manchester City to still challenge Liverpool for the 2020-21 Premier League title.

Over the past two seasons, both Liverpool and Manchester City have won a Premier League title.

Therefore, we agree with Carragher. It is still early in the season, so we expect the Citizens to bounce back.
