Pep Guardiola names club that will win the Premier League title in surprise admission



| Last Updated:


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has named the club that he believes will win the Premier League title this season.

The Premier League title race looks set to include a number of clubs ahead of the busy festive fixture schedule, with Manchester City bidding to win the league for a record-breaking fourth successive season.

Manchester City lifted the trophy for a third consecutive campaign last season, as part of a famous treble, with the Sky Blues also winning the UEFA Champions League and Emirates FA Cup.

The treble-winners overcame a spirited Arsenal to win the Premier League title by five points, courtesy of another remarkable winning streak, which included a thumping 4-1 victory over the Gunners at the Etihad Stadium in April.

Mikel Arteta’s team are currently top of the Premier League table, and could move six points clear of Manchester City with a win over Luton Town on Tuesday evening.

City, who have suffered three successive draws for the first time since 2017, fell to third in the table after a 3-3 draw against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.

Guardiola’s side have also drawn to Chelsea and Liverpool in recent weeks, dropping six points by conceding late goals in all three fixtures.

Manchester City travel to Aston Villa on Wednesday evening, with Unai Emery’s team just one point behind the reigning Premier League champions ahead of the clash at Villa Park.

Despite dropping points in five Premier League matches already this season, and the form of Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Villa, Guardiola believes that Manchester City will still win the title this season.

“My feeling today is we’re going to win the Premier League,” declared Guardiola.

“If we play at the levels that we showed against Liverpool and Tottenham, we’re going to do it again – knowing that it is not easy.”

Manchester City will be without both Rodri and Jack Grealish for Wednesday’s crucial trip to Villa Park, meanwhile Jeremy Doku could also miss the midweek clash due to injury, with the Belgium international set to be assessed.
