Man City have chance to become greatest Premier League side EVER – Redknapp | Football | Sport
City wrapped up the Premier League title yesterday after Manchester United fell to a shock home defeat by West Brom.
It means City have won the league with five games to spare and still have the opportunity to reach 100 points for the season.
Guardiola’s side have tasted defeat just twice in the league all season.
And Redknapp sees no reason why they can’t emulate the best teams the Premier League has seen over the past 25 years.
“Manchester City now tick all the boxes,” Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column.
“They have the manager, the players, the owners, everything they need to become one of the Premier League’s greatest teams.
“Are they better than Mourinho’s Chelsea in 2004-05? Better than Arsenal’s Invincibles? Better than Sir Alex Ferguson’s United title winners?
“It is hard to say until they have done it over two or three seasons but we have to say they have the opportunity to do it.
“The character of these worthy champions has been wonderful.”
Manchester City have scored more goals than anyone in the Premier League this season, their 93 is 15 better than Liverpool’s total.
The defence has also been the meanest too with no team conceding fewer than City’s 25.
They’ve completed over 3,000 more passes than any other side while also having over 70 per cent of possession on average.
It is their third title in seven years and equals Arsenal’s tally of three Premier League titles.
Only Manchester United (13) and Chelsea (five) have won more.
