Sergio Aguero has expressed his belief that Manchester United remains a strong contender in the Premier League title race, considering them more likely challengers to Manchester City than Arsenal and Liverpool.
Despite City’s recent struggles and being five points behind league leaders Arsenal, Aguero remains cautious about ruling out United’s potential.
City, facing a challenging start to their bid for a fourth consecutive title, have experienced a run of just one win in six league matches.
Currently trailing behind Arsenal and Liverpool by five and four points, respectively, Pep Guardiola’s team faces an uphill battle upon their return to Premier League action on December 27 after the Club World Cup.
Aguero, the former City striker, acknowledges the unpredictability of the season and refrains from dismissing United’s chances.
Despite sitting seventh and 11 points adrift of Arsenal, he emphasizes the threat they pose.
Additionally, Aguero identifies Tottenham, showing improvement under Ange Postecoglou, and even Newcastle, known for their resilience, as potential contenders for the league title.
In Aguero’s perspective, the Premier League remains open, with several teams, including traditional powerhouses and those displaying unexpected resilience, in contention for the coveted title.
