Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has revealed that current Premier League leaders Manchester City can be beaten this season.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are currently lighting up the Premier League after smashing plenty of records last term. The Spanish manager led the City to a record-breaking 100 points last campaign. In 12 games this season, City have dropped just four points and are yet to be beaten along with Liverpool and Chelsea firmly establishing themselves at the top of the summit.
City’s last victory came against local rivals Manchester United last weekend when the champions ensured that the power shift was indeed true and real. A convincing 3-1 victory over Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils proved that Manchester City means business and are no longer a club that will be seen in United’s shadow.
However, Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini is refusing to dwell on Manchester United’s defeat to their neighbors and he believes that Manchester City will be beaten this season and they can still be caught.
While speaking to Sky Sports, the 30-year-old giant was asked whether Manchester City would go through the season unscathed to which he replied, “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. 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 is 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.”
The Premier League is competitive but I don’t think that Manchester United can catch up with Manchester City this season. I feel that City could lose a few games later on in the season as their injury woes continue but they are showing why they are favorites to win the Premier League this term.
