Ince insists Liverpool will not win the Premier League while Guardiola is in charge of City.
He told BT Sport: "As long as Pep is at City, they won't win it. If Pep was to move, then I think Liverpool have more chance of winning it.
"I don't want that to happen because (Jurgen) Klopp has done a fabulous job, but he's so reliant on the front three. He's brought Xherdan Shaqiri in and not given him enough game-time.
"The City team is world class, Liverpool could add two or three to that. They can always keep challenging but I don't think they've got enough to beat them."
