Gary Neville believes that Tottenham will be strong next year, but feels that one of the two Manchester clubs will win the Premier League title next season.
Spurs managed a second-placed finish in the league during the last campaign behind champions Chelsea and manager Mauricio Pochettino has assembled a very strong squad.
The Argentinian boss is yet to strengthen in the summer transfer window, but his side will be regarded as one of the teams that can compete for the title.
Neville feels that Spurs will be in contention ahead of the next season, but has backed either Manchester City or Manchester United to win the domestic crown.
“I said last season that the title would come to Manchester – and I was wrong – but I think this year it will,” Neville said, as quoted by Sky Sports. “I think Chelsea will dip a little bit. Not in a negative way, but just having the Champions League will bring different challenges.
“I think Tottenham will be strong, but I feel that either United or City will win it, but I’m not sure who!”
Man United manager Jose Mourinho won three pieces of silverware during his first season in charge at Old Trafford and will now go into the new year with a big league expectation.
Meanwhile, Man City boss Pep Guardiola has had a year to adapt to English football and is expected to be challenging for major honours.
Spurs have recently sold Kyle Walker to league rivals Man City for £50million, while Guardiola’s side have also signed winger Bernando Silva for £43million from Monaco.
