I told that during pre-season.
Determined to build on a fine season that saw his team finish as Champions League runners-up and take fourth place in the Premier League, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp embarked on a £160-million spending spree.
The former Arsenal and England striker believes the Reds' summer transfer business can catapult them above Pep Guardiola's record-breaking champions.
The tonic to that lack of transfer activity is that Spurs have been able to keep all of their top stars, with a number of them tied down to new deals.
Wright continued: 'Liverpool proved last season that they are City's kryptonite, beating them three times - and they've strengthened better than anyone this summer. Premier League came out of his mouth before we'd even finished the question. We spoke to Kompany and Walker and they seem so intent to not drop below the mentality and standards they achieved previous year.
"I think back to back titles is an obsession for them".
In spite of the pall of gloom settling around his old club, Neville reckons that United should be expected to challenge for the title.
"I told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat and maybe tomorrow the reaction is the same: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, that's as simple as that". I don't think just because they haven't signed a centre-back we should be sat here thinking "We'll let Manchester United off the hook, they shouldn't be challenging this year". The west London club did snap up a player from Madrid on loan for the season: Midfielder Mateo Kovacic, who helped Croatia reach the World Cup final where it lost to France. The way in which United are being talked about this pre-season, it's as if they've got a load of bums playing for them.
