Micky Quinn names the one team who will challenge Manchester City next season
Former Newcastle United striker Micky Quinn believes Liverpool are the only team who can truly challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title in 2018/19, and expects them to spend £250million in the summer transfer window to achieve their aims.
Jurgen Klopps outfit are currently sitting in third in the table, although they will hope to rise above Manchester United in the final weeks of the season, and have reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Though Jose Mourinhos side sit above them in the league, Quinn does not expect United to truly challenge Pep Guardiolas championship-winning team next season.
And he expects Klopp to spend big and provide a serious assault on the title.
I just think that Klopp is trying to build a team to challenge for that elusive Premier League, which theyve never won, Quinn told TalkSport.
Hes put the pieces together. They play some sensational football like City as well – the front three are second to none and hell add to that.

I think hes got a war chest of about £250million to spend on players next season – and he deserves it. Especially if he wins the Champions League, which will be unbelievable.
I think Spurs are going to be hindered with the ground – financially can they compete with Manchester City and recruit? I dont know.
Manchester United, I think its going to be more of the same theyll be there or thereabouts next season but I dont think theyll genuinely challenge Manchester City.
With Klopp – his passion, his ideas, his brand of football, its no coincidence or fluke that he has a great record against Pep Guardiola teams as well.
Its going to be a title challenge next season for Liverpool Football Club.
