Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini reckons reigning champions Manchester City will not win the Premier League again this season.
Pep Guardiola’s City side are unbeaten so far this campaign and sit on top of the table after 12 games.
The Bookmakers make the Citizens overwhelming favourites to lift English football’s biggest prize again come May, although Belgium international Fellaini believes one of their title rivals will eventually overtake them and win the Premier League title.
“I don’t think so. I remember when I arrived in England it was a top four, now it is a top six, so every year it is more difficult,” Fellaini told Sky Sports.
“Next season we will see how it changes and in two and three years I think every year it is more difficult, the intensity is higher, so that’s why the Premier League is attractive.
“Manchester City are strong, but I think they will lose. Ok, they are very good and they have good players but it’s possible to beat them. We lost, but we have the second game at Old Trafford and we will see.”
One thing for sure is that it won’t be Fellaini’s Manchester United side that catch City, with the Red Devils currently in eighth place in the table – 12 points behind Guardiola’s men.
