Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva has ruled city rivals Manchester United out of the Premier League title race after just ten matches into the new campaign.
The Portuguese international star omitted the Red Devils from his list of title challengers during an interview monitored by the Daily Express.
According to him, Liverpool and Chelsea pose the biggest challenge to the Citizens’ throne as the defending champion.
The former AS Monaco star further revealed that the North London duo of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur could also challenge for the Premier League title despite Monday night’s 1-0 victory over the latter.
Manchester City regained their lead at the top of the Premier League table on goal difference ahead of nearest challengers Liverpool following their slim win over Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium on Monday courtesy an early goal from summer signing Riyad Mahrez.
Bernardo Silva mentioned five out of the famed top-six sides.
He didn’t talk about Manchester United as a title contender for this season’s Premier League title.
The Red Devils have endured a disastrous start to the new Premier League season with the Old Trafford side currently occupying eighth spot on the table after losing three from the first ten games of the season.
