Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has been discussing who he thinks will challenge for the Premier League title this season.
Man City have continued their impressive form from last season and currently lead at the top of the Premier League on goal difference from Liverpool. Chelsea are in third place, just two points behind City and The Reds.
“I don’t agree with just putting City and Liverpool as title contenders.’’ He told FourFourTwo.
“Chelsea have shown so much already this season. Arsenal, Tottenham are coming back. You’d think there’d be a bigger points gap by now but it’s not.
“I think most teams at the top are firing on all cylinders at this moment in time and this makes this league exciting.”
Kompany and his City team travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool, this Sunday. In what is sure to be a fantastic encounter, with the winners taking a three-point lead into the international break.
Liverpool beat City twice at Anfield, last season, and they will be looking to continue that streak to show that they are genuine title-challengers. The Reds are still waiting to win a first league title since 1990.
It’s too early in the season to call this fixture a must-win game for either side but the psychological boost for whichever team wins on Sunday cannot be underestimated, either.
