Andy Gray reveals one Man City defender that would get into Liverpool’s back four | Football | Sport

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte is the only player in Pep Guardiola’s back four that would get in Liverpool’s side, according to Andy Gray.

Liverpool and City battled each other to the end last season for Premier League title supremacy.

City came out on top, winning the title by just one point, but Liverpool are already in the driving seat this term.

The Reds have won their first five games while City have drawn one and lost another.

Liverpool sit top, five points ahead of City, who were defeated by Norwich on Saturday.

And Gray believes that City’s performance was down to one thing – defensive lapses.

The former Sky Sports pundit thinks that Guardiola is missing Laporte – who is the only defender in City’s ranks who would get in the Liverpool team.

“It’s one of the main differences for me between Liverpool and Manchester City [the defence],” Gray told BEIN Sports.

“There’s only Laporte, would get anywhere near Liverpool’s back four and he’s not there for six months.”

“I was going to say it’s a problem in the big games, this is only Norwich.

“This is not even Norwich, this is the big boys.

“That’s where their Achilles heel is for me, it’s defensively.”

Liverpool’s next clash is against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, a game they drew 1-1 last season.

City, on the other hand, face Watford, who drew with Arsenal 2-2 on Sunday at Vicarage Road.
