Former Everton and Tottenham striker Gary Lineker rates Manchester City as Premier League favourites.

City ran derby rivals Manchester United ragged in a comprehensive victory at the weekend and have plundered nine goals in their past two games in all competitions.

"This season is hugely unpredictable," he told talkSPORT.

"With Manchester United changing things so much, City having a new manager, Jose back at Chelsea, the huge changes at Spurs, [Mesut] Ozil coming in at Arsenal, even Liverpool making a resurgence, I think it could well be the most open season in years.

"If I had to stake my life on it, I would go Manchester City."
