Whatever about title, drama is guaranteed in chase for top 4

They've spent almost €455 million over the last four seasons but if you listen to Brendan Rodgers and Louis van Gaal you might believe Manchester City's current second place in the League is tenuous.

As Liverpool prepare to host Manchester United on Sunday, with just two points between the Reds and the Red Devils, Rodgers sees "an opportunity to finish second." Van Gaal says his team are "now two points from second." Unbeaten in 13 league games, Liverpool are relishing home advantage on Sunday for a game that promises to be a fascinating tactical battle with both managers anxious to stake their claim. Although Van Gaal concedes his club hasn't been winning at Anfield recently.

Third-placed Arsenal, also in fine form domestically, could yet pose a threat in the title race, according to Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
