Ander Herrera believes Manchester City are under immense pressure to deliver the title, following a trophyless season last time out and their spending in the summer
City are joint top of the table with United, garnering 13 points in five games and scoring 16 goals. Their success comes on the back of spending over £200 million in the summer. The likes of Mendy, Walker, Danilo, Ederson and Bernardo Silva were splurged on to strengthen the squad.
And due to their extravagant spending, Herrera believes the pressure is on their rivals and not United to deliver a trophy this season.
“We won three titles last season [the Community Shield, League Cup and Europa League] and Man City didn’t win anything,” Herrera told reporters.
“They are under pressure. They are obligated to win something. They have more obligation than us.
“City have spent the biggest amount in the Premier League so they are the principle contenders for the title.
“We have quality as well, but because of the money they have spent, they are the favourites.
“We will try to be there. There is pressure when you spend a lot but there is also pressure on us because we are the biggest club in England.
“But you know when you play for United that you are under an obligation to win things and I like that obligation”
