Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has given his prediction for the Premier League title race this season.
Silva, whose side won the league title last season, believes Chelsea and Liverpool will challenge his side for the title.
“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,” Silva 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.”
Meanwhile, pundit Chris Sutton doesn’t agree with the Portuguese winger on Tottenham’s view.
“This isn’t a confident Tottenham side. It is just not clicking,” Sutton said following Spurs’ 1-0 defeat to City on Monday.
“If Spurs go out of the League Cup in midweek with a limp against West Ham, there will be more questions asked.”
“Do this team look like pushing for the title? They look miles off.”
“This is why City will take some shifting. It was a big win for them. They took the chance early.”
The Citizens are now the Premier League leaders with 26 points and an unbeaten start this season as they look to defend their title.
