Toure Says Manchester United Still In The Running For EPL Title

share on:

Manchester United currently sit sixth on the log, but according to Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure, they’re still in the running to win the EPL title.

Liverpool and Manchester City are level on points after 13 games, and are one point behind Chelsea on the table.

Manchester United are 11 points behind Chelsea, but that won’t stop Toure from earmarking them alongside Arsenal and Tottenham for the trophy.

“To be honest it’s Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United,” Toure told reporters when asked who City’s title rivals were.

“The league this year is unpredictable and it’s going to be decided in the last two or three months this year.”

City are at home to Chelsea in a huge league clash on Saturday and Toure is in no doubt his side are at a disadvantage due to Antonio Conte’s side not being involved in European competition.

The 33-year-old added: “When you are a top player and you only play once a week – like the Chelsea players, they only play once a week – it’s easier to play well, it’s easier to recover well and easier to take full advantage.

“It’s going to be a tough game on Saturday, that’s for sure. They definitely have an advantage.

“It’s difficult to play midweek and then the weekend after. Sometimes with the European schedule we play on a Wednesday, like this week, and then a Saturday.

“It’s sometimes tough to be focused and in these kind of games, you have to prepare well to compete.”
