James Milner admits Liverpool have had a tough time against big teams, but expects City to hit a sticky patch soon.
Liverpool lost 5-0 to the Etihad Stadium outfit, before losing 4-1 to Tottenham and managing draws against United and Chelsea.
Milner is confident of Liverpool winning silverware this season and of City hitting a dry spell.
“Last year we played really well against the top sides, but struggled against the so-called lesser teams,” Milner told Sky Sports.
“And this year we have had two disappointing results against teams challenging and maybe been a bit more ruthless against the lower teams.
“I think it is all there, we just need to put it all together. A lot can happen and we have probably had a sticky period, Spurs have had one and I am sure Man City will. And it is whether they can still get results in that time.
“There is a chasing pack at the moment which is pretty tight, everyone is close together and that is the quality of the Premier League.”
