Premier League 2020-21 preview: Liverpool and Man City have issues entering EPL season | ESPN FC

The Premier League season is less than one week away, and for the first time since 1990, Liverpool enter the campaign as reigning league champions. Can Jurgen Klopp's men do what hasn't been done at Anfield since 1984 and repeat as league winners, or can Manchester City regain top spot after finishing 18 points off the pace last season? ESPN FC's Steve Nicol, Shaka Hislop and Danny Higginbotham debate which side is poised to win the title as they provide an in-depth look into the 2020-21 EPL season. The guys also discuss (5:00) Chelsea's ceiling this season and how Frank Lampard will line up his squad after spending big in the transfer window, (7:53) whether Manchester United newcomer Donny van de Beek can play with Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, and (10:56) which team outside last season's top four has the best chance of breaking in this time around.
