Former footballer and pundit Paul Merson is confident that Manchester City won’t finish lower than second in the Premier League this season. Despite their recent setbacks, he believes it’s “game on” for City and dismisses claims of fatigue.
Manchester City faced two consecutive Premier League defeats, first losing 2-1 to Wolves at Molineux, which ended their 100% win record for the current campaign. They then suffered a 1-0 defeat to last year’s title challengers, Arsenal, on Sunday, October 8th. As a result, Pep Guardiola’s side currently sits in third place in the Premier League table, with eighteen points from their first eight matches.
Tottenham and Arsenal are the two teams currently ahead of City in the league standings. Both teams remain undefeated this season and are just two points ahead of the Sky Blues.
Merson, in his analysis, emphasized that City was missing key players like Rodri and Kevin De Bruyne, with Jack Grealish, one of their standout performers from the previous season, only on the bench. He argued that, given these circumstances, it’s understandable that City didn’t dominate Arsenal in their recent clash.
Despite their recent struggles, Merson believes that once City’s injured players return and the team regains full strength, they will be a formidable force in the league. He predicts that no other team will surpass City after the winter break.
As the Premier League season unfolds, football enthusiasts eagerly await to see if Paul Merson’s predictions will hold true and whether Manchester City can reclaim their dominance at the top of the table.
In summary, Paul Merson remains optimistic about Manchester City’s performance in the Premier League this season, expecting them to finish no lower than second place despite recent challenges.
