Manchester City midfielder Bernado Silva has ruled out Manchester United from the Premier League title race, this is according to reports.]
United have had one of their poorest start in the League, having lost three games already and are sitting in eight place on the log after 10 games. The Red Devils are already five points adrift Arsenal in fourth position and nine adrift City and Liverpool in first and second respectively.
Jose Mourinho led United to a second place finish in the League last term but it appears as though they need to work much more harder to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Silva has laid bare his opinion on the race for the title but he has dismissed United as non-contenders for the League when he did not mention them.
‘I think it will be harder because last season nobody was expecting us to win as many games and to reach that level of points, so this season the teams know they have to do better to beat us,’ he said.
‘Of course it will be very hard, but we will work every game to get the three points and at the end of it try and celebrate winning one more Premier League.
‘I think either Chelsea and Liverpool (are contenders), they are very strong, Arsenal as well. Even Tottenham, even though they lost, they’re still contenders.’
City are yet to lost a game in the League this term despite playing Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham away from home. Silva went further to claim this could prove decisive in their quest to win the title.
‘I think that it’s important to win these games, to have a draw away at Anfield, to win at the Emirates and now here at Wembley, it’s important,’ the Portuguese said.
‘But still they have to come to play us at the Etihad, which is a bit better for us. ‘It’s still the beginning of the season and anything can happen, we have to keep strong and with the ambition of winning every game and never relax.’
