EPL: Sarri names best team in Europe


Storm clouds have been gathering over Jose Mourinho's misfiring United side and on a wet night in the north west they again looked well short of being contenders for the top four.

"I don't think City can be stopped, and they will win the Premier League this season", he said.

Star centre-back Otamendi said: "We're entering into a very demanding month, with games every three or four days". They will feel confident about overcoming Chelsea on Saturday, despite travelling to Stamford Bridge for the match.

"We believe in each other, we know what we are capable of, we know we are very hard to beat and very hard to get a result from".

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously had reported that Wolverhampton Wanderers were 2-1 winners over visiting Chelsea in a Premier League fixture played at the Molineux.

As we prepare to take on Chelsea, Adrian Clarke believes that Sane is a more complete attacker this season.

Hazard spoke out following Wednesday's shock 2-1 defeat at Wolves which left Maurizio Sarri's men ten points behind runaway leaders City. "The 22-year-old is playing with great confidence and his end product has been staggeringly good". Brighton may well get that win here but if they do, it's likely to be by the single goal in a hard-fought contest.

"He has kept his width during most of City's build-up play, stretching defences".

A World Cup year, though, resets the generally understood criteria to judge what it takes for a player to rise above his peers. His incredible goal in the final even made him the second teenager in history to score in a World Cup final.

Andy Schooler says: "Leicester have impressed at times but have also struggled against the best sides in the league".

"It will be very hard, but we need to look at ourselves. The Terriers have only won one away game and were thumped 5-0 at Arsenal last season. Arsenal 3-1 Huddersfield".

BBC's Mark Lawrenson took on World Champion boxer, Josh Warrington, and the pair both eye a win for the Blues.

The player himself is keeping his options open and will wait to see how much he is used over the Christmas period before committing to staying for the rest of the season.

The defeat becomes Maurizio Sarri second in all competitions since taking over the mantle in the summer.

"Away from the Champions League, very few teams have really tested City this season - Liverpool gave them a good game at Anfield and they drew at Wolves, but Wolves' goal should never have been allowed anyway".

For Liverpool to have any realistic hope of overhauling City to win the title, they really must win that game because they simply can not rely on the rest of the Premier League to rein Guardiola's team in.
