Man City captain Vincent Kompany has predicted that it will be a three-horse race for the Premier League title this season. He believes the scrap for the title is between themselves (City), Chelsea and Arsenal.
Chelsea are the odds-on favourites with most bookmakers to win the league and so far they have lived up to expectation, topping the table with 13 points having not lost a game yet. Arsenal sit in fourth on nine points and City are in sixth with 8 points so far and the defender expects all three to be at the top end of the table this year.
He said: “It is not fair to call it at the moment. First of all we are not even close to Chelsea yet (in the table). Secondly, I have seen good things from Chelsea but I have seen maybe better things from Arsenal so I guess it will all be about consistency and, with the Champions League, it will get messy around December.
“It is too early to call. Five points is nothing but Chelsea have five points more than us, it is as simple as that. But it will get messy in December and January as it always does – or at least the last six years I have been here it has.”
City managed to snatch a 1-1 draw against Chelsea this weekend and, speaking about his own performance, he added: “I loved it. I live for those moments. People who know me know I want nothing else than to play against the big strikers week in, week out and I enjoyed every minute of it.”
