Is the Premier League title race over for Manchester City?

2020-01-14T00:38:41.692Z



With Liverpool named as the "unofficial champions of the Premier League", many teams are switching their focus, attention and hard work to attaining the Champions League title. Previously won by Liverpool themselves, it's clear the Reds are focused on winning the Premier League this year and aren't really giving competitors a fighting chance, or even a chance at all as they remain 16 points clear in the table.

Winners of Premier League 2018/19, Manchester City, are rumoured to be officially diverting their attention to the UEFA Champions League. Even Shaun Wright, ex-Manchester City star, admits the Blues "haven’t been on best form this season" in an exclusive interview with Sportingbet. However, Vincent Kompany, a former player for Manchester City, still has high hopes for Pep Guardiola and his former team.

The club legend insists "there is no reason to be disappointed about this season" with multiple pieces of silverware still up for grabs for the Blues. He also believes Man City are well capable of a third successive Premier League title just yet. He claims they have so many things to look forward to, even though the Blues are trailing 14 points behind, having played a game more than their rivals.

Nonetheless, the faith Kompany has in his former boss is admirable. "I never say it's over with City [Premier League title race]. It's impossible to say. But it is not in the hands of Manchester City and that's unfortunate but there is so many things to look forward to".

Although, even Kompany cannot deny the impact that the Reds have made with such a great start to the season. Defending Guardiola, Kompany claims insists he is the right man to bring further success to Manchester City - despite seeing his former club fall behind Liverpool in the Premier League title race.

But, City are still fighting on three fronts in the cup competitions and success in the Carabao Cup would earn Pep Guardiola a sixth domestic trophy in a row. Kompany is backing his former manager Guardiola to lead the fightback in response to Liverpool's march towards their first Premier League title.

As for the Champions League, the Anderlecht player-manager does not believe the club should make drastic changes in their pursuit of Jurgen Klopp's team. He added: "When you have such a manager of the status of Pep Guardiola. It is a matter of cycles. Players left and players came in, it takes time."

Although Liverpool are most likely to win the Premier League this year, with such enthusiasm, motivation and drive expressed by Kompany for his team, Manchester City might even catch up, should the Reds commit massive blunders.
