“I can’t say that it is over”- Manchester City player on the Premier League title race
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City has been on a staggering run of wins in the Premier League, having registered 12 wins in a row. The team is scheduled to play Southampton away at St. Mary’s Stadium where they would like to move 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Ten years back it would be foolish for fans to even think that the winner of the Premier League has been decided in January, however, it is no longer the case. With the kind of form Manchester City has been in, many have started to acknowledge that they are going to win the Premier League title once again.
In what was an interview released ahead of Manchester City’s match against Southampton, City right-back Kyle Walker was asked about the Premier League race and whether the race is already over. The English national said that he doesn’t think that it is over.
He said: “I don’t think it is over. I can’t say that it is over.”
He talks about how Manchester City chased Liverpool down until the last day and says that Manchester City fought till the last day to beat Liverpool to the Premier League race.
He said: “I remember when we was chasing Liverpool down and we had to go on an incredible run to go pit Liverpool at the last game.
“I remember going 1-0 down at Brighton and you are a little bit nervous because you think it should be routine 3-points and win the Premier League.
“We closed the game down then, so it’s not impossible.
We are very critical of ourselves, maybe people stand back and say that they are one of the best Premier League Era, but we all still believe that we can improve.
Further improvement of Manchester City and the Champions League
The 31-year old English right back further went on to stress that the team believes they can improve further. He thinks that the Manchester City team needs to adapt better to the Champions League playing style and win the much-awaited title.
“We still believe that there is another gear to gain and especially coming into the Champions League where it is a little bit of different platform to the Premier League and style of play.
“We need to adapt to that a little better and go and pick up that trophy that we are desperately need.
