Manchester City are in a “one-horse race” for the Premier League title. Poor Manchester United.
City boast an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League table after 15 games.
They have won all but one of their games, have won a record 13 consecutive league matches, have not lost since April and have scored 11 league goals more than any other club.
With the Manchester derby looming on Sunday, Shaun Goater feels that not only could City “walk the game”, but they will tighten their grip on the trophy.
“Pep Guardiola will be saying to his players that there is a lot of work to be done, which is right because the league isn’t won yet, but the work that is done now allows you to win the league,” said Goater.
“It’s City’s to lose, as early as it is. I think it’s a one-horse race. I think it will confirm that after the derby game.
“Football being the way it is, you expect City to maybe walk the game or for it to be easy, but there is no doubt United will be up for this one because they can’t afford to go any further behind.”
