The BT Sport pundit and former Man Utd centre-back gave his pre-season predictions to premierleague.com.
“Both have different methods and philosophies, but both are very effective.
“They’re winners, so those additions, more than any players, are the most important things at their clubs.
“Man Utd fell short last year and Mourinho won’t let that happen this year, and Guardiola is the same for City.”
“Leicester came out of the traps last season and were the surprise package, but teams know more about them now.
"If Leicester can deal with teams approaching them a different way, they will be up there again, but the four of five we’re accustomed to seeing will be the ones up there.”
“In terms of recruitment and investment, Middlesbrough have been the busiest. So they’re going to have the best chance.
“The instability for Hull City will make it very difficult for them. Above the other two clubs, Burnley have experience of playing in the Premier League.
“A lot of their players played here last time. They know what went wrong. Can they right those wrongs?”
“The most interesting signing is Leroy Sane for Man City. He’s a young player with huge potential. He’s a quick, modern-day footballer. It will be interesting to see how he adapts to the league.”
