Manchester City became the first team ever to accumulate 100 points in a single season back in 2017-18. The England champions won a staggering 32 times in 38 games under Pep Guardiola that season.

City also claimed an unprecedented domestic treble last term where Jurgen Klopp's in -form Liverpool side pushed them all the way in the Premier League, leaving the Etihad outfit to narrowly scooped the prize with a huge 98 points - a point better than the Merseysiders.

Given the depth and quality within their squad, Guardiola will be confident of masterminding the Cityzens to a silverware this season.

And Carragher fears that Liverpool - who have not made any summer signings may be tested to the limit to keep up.

The former Liverpool defender told Off The Ball: "I think it will be very difficult, I think City are a special team.

"I think City have proven that when they're at their best they get 90-odd points, 98, 100. Liverpool have done it once, City have done it twice. That tells me that’s what City do.

"I think this season we've got to see if Liverpool's season in getting 97 was a freak. And it probably could be because it was.

"It's probably only happened three or four times in history and Man City have done it twice.

"That could be a problem not just for Liverpool but for the rest of the top six as long as Man City and Pep Guardiola are about.

"They're the levels you've got to get to and very few teams will be able to get there."

Liverpool will kickoff their new Premier League campaign next Friday when they host newly-promoted Norwich City at Anfield.
