Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has overlooked the Red Devils and named Manchester City and Chelsea as the two best teams in the English top-flight league.
Ferdinand said this while giving his verdict on Man City’s Premier League 1-0 victory over Chelsea at the weekend.
Man City are currently in the second position on the Premier League table with 13 points from 6 games, while Chelsea are in the third position with 13 points from the same number of games.
Speaking on his Vibe with FIVE YouTube show, the former England international said: “The way City played at the weekend, that is the way champions go to a rival and say, “Listen, you think you are at our level? You guys better start working more”.
“And I think Chelsea looked a little bit [overawed]. Tuchel said after that maybe they were a bit fazed by the occasion.
“He changed his style of play, the formation, played two up front, which I think backfired. They didn’t play long enough, they tried to keep playing and got caught with the press.
‘In this league, in the Premier League, City will dominate every team possession-wise, every team. It’s just, can they finish the chances off?
“I said Chelsea were favourite a couple of weeks ago, but after watching them two – probably the best two teams in the league for the last six months.”
