Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has said that Manchester City’s unstoppable form is threatening to turn the Premier League into a one-horse race.
City went top of the table on Saturday with a 3-0 win at Wolves.
Jack Grealish opened the scoring after 55 seconds, before Erling Haaland and Phil Foden added goals.
With 23 goals in their opening seven fixtures, City have by far the best offensive record in the league and only Antonio Conte’s Tottenham have conceded fewer this season.
Ferdinand has now admitted Pep Guardiola’s team already look on course to secure a third successive league title.
“It’s ominous for everyone else. It’s looking like a one horse race. They’re only going to get stronger. Haaland has hit the ground like a racehorse. He’s taken everybody else’s game up a level.
“Grealish answered the critics in a wonderful way with a good performance and a goal. Kyle Walker is coming back. All things are looking positive. There will be bumps in the road for every team but this is looking good,” Ferdinand said.
