Arsenal legend George Graham feels the Premier League title will "remain in Manchester".

The Scot feels Manchester United are Manchester City's nearest challengers this season.

"I just feel that, one way or another, the title will stay in Manchester," Graham told the Sunday Mirror.

"Both of those clubs will be top-four ­contenders. But I believe that it will be between City and United again.

"City have not yet made any expensive buys, but when you look at it, do they need to?

"In David Silva and Sergio Aguero they have world-class players and Carlos Tevez is still there. The goalkeeper Joe Hart is the last line of a well-organised defence, and they have a strong midfield.

"United? They need to strengthen and I think Sir Alex Ferguson knows that.

"But they still have Wayne ­Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez as well as ­Ashley Young and Nani. They will be a big force."
