Jamie Redknapp claims that Manchester City are still Liverpool's biggest threat when it comes to the Premier League title.

Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Manchester City are still Jurgen Klopp's side's biggest threat when it comes to the Premier League title.

City recorded a 3-1 win over second-placed Leicester City on Saturday to move to within 11 points off Liverpool in the table, but the Reds have a game in hand following their involvement in the Club World Cup.

Despite Leicester still sitting second in the division, Redknapp has said that the reigning champions will offer the biggest threat to the European Cup holders.

"If there were to be a miracle and Liverpool were to lose the title, I still think it would only come from Manchester City," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

"They showed today the quality that they've got, and they were far and away the best side both in and out of possession. We talked about them getting countered but they handled every situation so well.

"Points-wise, obviously it wouldn't have been so good [for Liverpool], as they would've closed the gap, and Boxing Day becomes so important, but these City players are winners."

Pep Guardiola's side are next in league action away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on December 27.
