“Sailboat” accelerated at the end of last season, surpassing “Artillery” to win the league title to win a great one. And still placed as one of the favorites in the 2023/24 season, despite the loss of Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez, but overall, at the moment, Merson is still considered superior to other teams

“I can’t ignore Man City for being Premier League champions, losing Ilkay Gundogan and Kyle Walker moving on, it could be tough for them.” Merson said. Said to Sportskida.

“Arsenal have spent quite a bit of money. But City’s bench is very strong and Declan Rice must be use to the way Arsenal play. The team moves the ball much faster than he was use to West Ham and England, Arsenal. It will be close. But I don’t see Liverpool as a contender right now UFABET

“A lot will depend on whether or not Manchester United can get Harry Kane. If they can, they are the main challengers for the Premier League title. If not They are just fighting for the top four.

“I don’t think Chelsea will be in the top four. There’s a lot of work to do right now. They have a big team without midfield. And they let Mateo Kovacic and Mason Mount go, their team was very unbalanced.

“At this moment, the only thing that can deny Manchester City a title is they do it themselves. They have a great team and should be able to defend the title.
