Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure rates Liverpool a bigger title threat than Manchester United. Both Manchester clubs have lost three times already this season but seventh-placed City are two points above United.

However, Toure, 30, told The Sun: "United will find it hard to defend the title since they have a new manager and are really struggling.

"Liverpool are a big threat at the moment because they have a strong squad and their strikers - Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge - are scoring goals at will."
