Before the Premier League season began, Manchester City were the outright favourites to win the Premier League title for a second consecutive year.
Liverpool have also been tipped to go far in the race due to the fact that they had one of the better transfer windows compared to their top-four rivals.
Manager Jurgen Klopp finally addressed the club’s goalkeeping issue by splashing out on Alisson from Roma, while Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri also joined.
The 2018-19 campaign is in its infancy in the Premier League, with just one game played for all clubs.
However, both City and Liverpool impressed in their opening fixtures by claiming a 2-0 win over Arsenal and 4-0 triumph over West Ham United respectively.
City suffered a huge blow earlier this week, though, when the club announced via their official website that Kevin De Bruyne suffered a knee injury in training.
The reigning champions have not revealed the extent of the problem, but The Guardian recently reported that the midfielder could be missing for up to three months.
De Bruyne was a crucial figure in City’s title win last season, and this news has left some Liverpool fans feeling that their bid for Premier League glory has got a little easier.
Kevin De Bruyne’s injury only makes Liverpool’s title challenge stronger don’t care what anyone says.
Huge loss for them Massive boost for us.#LFC

If you don’t think about how LFC title chances just increased cause of the De Bruyne injury you’re just stupid.

Gutted for De Bruyne. Best player to watch in the league. However, it’s great for #LFC‘s title hopes and that makes me happy.

You’d be lying as an LFC fan if that De Bruyne injury wasn’t good news…..

Is it wrong that I’m actually pleased that Kevin de Bruyne is injured and could be out for 2-3 months? I’m just up for LFC getting any advantage we can!
