MANCHESTER City are so scary right now they’ve almost got a Mike Tyson aura about them.
Pep Guardiola’s boys don’t need to trash-talk any of their title rivals – they know they’ve got the power to deliver the knockout blow.
While the rest of the contenders trade punches with each other hoping for a title shot, City stand menacingly over them as the undisputed kings. For me, the title race is over and normally anyone saying that one week into December with City just two points clear of Liverpool would be accused of losing his marbles. But, I honestly can’t see any other outcome.
And, here’s another thing, I wouldn’t be in the least surprised to see them stay unbeaten all season either.
If they did that, then it’s an ®Êby PAUL BROWN achievement that would even surpass that of the Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ because the Premier League just gets stronger and stronger every season.
City play Chelsea today and I heard Maurizio Sarri say he was worried after their shock 2-1 defeat at Wolves.
Trust me, he should be.
Three weeks ago, there was hardly anything in it. Now, defeats to Tottenham and Wolves, leave Chelsea with no option but to beat Pep’s boys at the weekend.
If they lose it, then the points difference would be 13 and there’s no way they are going to claw that back.
City look unstoppable at home and away from home they have already won at Arsenal and Spurs and drawn at Liverpool.
You just can’t see any way back – the impact of the Wolves defeat is just massive in terms of points and the psychological blow inflicted.
It’s all ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ but had Chelsea beaten Wolves – which they should have done – the gap would have been seven points.
That would have meant a Chelsea victory against City tonight would have cut the gap between the two clubs to a mere four and it would be all to play for.
Now it’s an entirely different story and that’s because City aren’t losing
