So what if United have signed Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof? One of their most emblematic figures of all times still thinks that city rivals Manchester City are favorites to win the Premier League the coming season.
I think Manchester City are the team to beat. I looked at them towards the end of last season and the forward players they’ve got is scary, with Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Raheem Sterling
Ryan Giggs told Sky Sports, not hiding his admiration for City’s offensive strength.
What they needed to get right was their defence and it will be interesting to see how Ederson settles in, because you don’t win the Premier League with an average goalkeeper
the former United captain said, referring to the 23-year-old Brazilian-Portuguese keeper City signed from Benfica.
They’ve obviously invested heavily on full-backs but the question is still whether Vincent Kompany can stay fit because his influence and experience are key for them
Giggs also said, considering City’s captain probably the most influential player they’ve got.
As for champions Chelsea, the Welshman is not underestimating their quality, but has his doubts whether they can combine PL success with Champions League duties or not.
You can’t ignore Chelsea because of their quality, but have they got the squad to balance defending the Premier League and European football? I’m not sure
