League football has resumed this week, and the biggest games in England are on Sunday where Chelsea would face Arsenal, Aston Villa will face Manchester United, and Liverpool would face Tottenham. Note that the outcomes of the game would determine how the top 4 would look this weekend.
However, in a pre-match interview, Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola spoke about the tops that can win the 2022/2023 English Premier League title.
In this interview, he said Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Newcastle, Tottenham, Liverpool, and Manchester City are title contenders.
Hence, this article will center on why Guardiola is wrong to list United, Newcastle, Tottenham, Liverpool, and Chelsea as teams that can win the title.
1. Most Of These Teams Will Fight For Top Four.
Well, the opening match days in the EPL have shown that Manchester City and Arsenal are the only title contender in the EPL.
These two teams have shown consistency in their games, and they have also shown stability with their tactical setup and tactics.
On the other hand, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Newcastle lack consistency- which is needed to win the league.
However, note that these five teams would end up fighting for the top position. Similarly, Liverpool’s injury crisis could be a major problem in the title race. Hence, Pep Guardiola’s statement is wrong.
