Mourinho on Man City ban Premier League Man City
Etihad Stadium Man City Premier League

Before the start of the 20191-20 season, most people have put their money on either Man City or Liverpool to win the Premier League title.

Man City successfully defended their title last season and most pundits have a feeling that Pep Guardiola will once again be able to guide his team to the top.

The Citizens did drop their first points of the new campaign as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Tottenham Hotspur at home.

Spurs did not particularly play well in this game and it was a late VAR decision which actually prevented Man City from picking up all three points.

And speaking after this game, pundit Paul Merson has come out to make a bold prediction saying that no other team in the Premier League will be able to beat Man City this season.

Merson said: “Let’s be honest, it is not like Spurs went there and ripped Man City apart! They could play 75 per cent as good as they did on Saturday and still win the league comfortably!

“It was an absolute battering! And all City will be taking away from that is: there is nothing wrong with us.

“If I were Tottenham, they just got over the line against Villa and let’s be honest, they got rinsed on Saturday. And if that had ended up six or seven, Tottenham would not have complained, they could not have moaned.

“City do not have to tweak anything if they carry on playing like that. You cannot see anybody beating them.

“Last season, Kevin De Bruyne did not play a lot and they still won the league and now you are talking about a player who would walk into every other team in the league, if not the world.

“There is nothing wrong with City, they played very, very well. And if they keep on playing like that, teams will not be able to live with them. And that was against one of the top three teams in the country, a title contender and a very good team themselves, not against a team from the bottom half.

“And they were making Tottenham look very, very average on Saturday and believe me, they are not an average team, they are a very good side.

“And that just puts it in perspective.”

Teams like Man United and Arsenal have made some pretty good signings during the summer but we do not see them challenging for the Premier League title anytime soon.

Last season, Man City lost 4 games in the league so it would not be a total surprise if the defending champions can finish this campaign without a loss.
