Manchester City midfielder James Milner is counting on Liverpool losing their bottle in the title race.

Glen Johnson is the only Reds regular to have won the league and Milner feels City's experience of lifting the title in 2012 can give them the edge.

"Yeah, it looks like Liverpool are our main contenders," said the England midfielder. "Chelsea are still in there as well.

"Hopefully we can rely on the experience which we've got. We've been there, we've won it before. Liverpool haven't in recent times, so hopefully that could help us.

"They are playing so well and we just have to concentrate on our games."
