Premier League quality better than ever?

Sky Sports' Gary Neville:

"I don't think I've seen, in Premier League history, four teams as good as the top four we've got at the moment. And I don't think I've seen the Premier League this good in terms of quality.

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher discuss on MNF who the greatest player of all time is - Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi

"We could have the four best teams in the whole world at this moment in time,

"Liverpool's first XI, if they can keep that fit, is possibly the best XI in the Premier League. And Liverpool aren't even being talked about at the moment!

"City's team is exceptional, Chelsea are strong like you wouldn't believe, and Man Utd with the addition of Ronaldo, Sancho and Varane are going to be right in there amongst it.

"We've never truly had a title race of four teams, this could be a massive ding-dong this season.

"The games we've been watching are really good, the atmospheres are good, the quality is good, the speed of the game, the athleticism of the players. This is absolutely top level we are witnessing at this time."
