Lfc rumour
The former England star believes the Cityzens have lost their place as challengers for the title following a 2-1 defeat at home to  Manchester United.

City have won consecutively, the last two Premier League titles, but they now find themselves 14 points behind leaders Liverpool with 16 games settled.

Redknapp outlined the difficulties that City have endured of late, and stated that he feels that there has been too much disruption to the core of the team.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Redknapp said: "City can't come back from 14 points. It's impossible. At the start of the year they didn't buy a centre-back when they lost Kompany. Then they had the injury to Laporte.

"Fernandinho then goes out of midfield. Rodri doesn't sense danger like Fernandinho. Silva's now coming to the end.

"They're the best side I've seen in the Premier League but they're just starting to get over the edge, whereas Liverpool haven't had that disruption."

Manchester United took a first-half lead in the Saturday derby through a penalty from Marcus Rashford, with Anthony Martial also getting on the scoresheet.

The Red Devils could held on to their two-goal lead to take all three points after Nicolas Otamendi got a goal back for Cityzens in the closing stages.

Although the reigning champions are still capable of producing some breathtaking passages of play at times, they have been significantly more vulnerable defensively this season.
