Manchester City finally have started looking like the team they are as their stellar run of form has propelled them right to the summit of the Premier League table.
Pep Guardiola’s side are now sitting at the top with 47 points to their name. That sees them three points ahead of their rivals Manchester United and they have played a game lesser than the Red Devils too.
Former Chelsea defender and current Aston Villa assistant manager John Terry is very impressed with how things have gone for Guardiola and his men of late, and he has no doubt that they are the best side in the Premier League right now.
“I’ve said Man City from the start [for the title],” he told Tuesday’s Sports Bar, a talkSPORT show.
“We [Aston Villa] played against them recently, and they are the kind of team that, no matter how you play, if they are on it, they can beat anyone in the league.
“I think they are the best team, they have the best individuals, and when they are at it they are by far the best team.They are showing that with their recent run.”
Terry also pointed out how smoothly Manchester City operate as a team on the field and thus make it hard for their opposition to deal with them.
“When you play against them the movement is incredible and you really don’t know what to do,” he continued.
“It’s one of those games where you come off and can only learn from it really, how well they move and the options they give each other on the pitch. They make it so difficult for the opposition team.
“So they are the ones for me.”
Terry knows a thing or two about winning the Premier League title. He has won five titles with Chelsea in 2004/05, 2005/06, 2009/10, 2014/15 and 2016/17. His managerial job right now is going pretty well too. Aston Villa are currently placed ninth in the Premier League table, that too after playing lesser games than most other teams in the league.
