Ryan Giggs makes Premier League predictions for Manchester United and Man City
Ryan Giggs believes it will be a Manchester dogfight for the Premier League title in Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola's second seasons in the city.
And he has labelled the City forward ranks 'scary.'
United great Giggs believes his former team - strengthened by the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof - will have a shot at the Premier League title.
And he sees City, who finished third last season, in the mix as well after recruiting Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker and goalkeeper Ederson Moraes.
Both are set to add more players to their respective squads and Giggs told talkSPORT: “I can see United and City definitely contending for the league.
“It’s Jose’s second season with United. Last season they had the best squad and I think this year they’ve got the best squad again.
“They haven’t necessarily got the best XI, but their strength in depth is huge.
“And City, towards the end of the season away at Watford they had Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne.
“That front five is scary…and Raheem Sterling wasn’t even on the pitch!
“It’s Guardiola’s second season in the Premier League, too, so they will be really strong.
“It’ll be interesting to see how Chelsea cope with the Champions League, but I can definitely see United and City contending for the title.”
United and City meet ion their respective pre-season tours in Houston in the early hours (UK time) of Friday morning in the first derby match outside the UK.
