“Man City are obviously the favourites and it’s tough to fight against them to win the Prem,” he told The Athletic.

“You can play one of your best seasons like we did, score more than 90 points and it still doesn’t mean you win the title. We know that if we want to win it we’ll need to be almost perfect.

“City are always buying new players, always reinforcing their team. This summer was no different with Haaland joining them. I think it will be a really good battle with them, but not just them.

“Tottenham have bought some good players, Arsenal too with Gabriel Jesus going there, Chelsea too.

“Everyone has been reinforcing because everyone wants to beat City. That means the Premier League will be at a really good level this season.”
