EPL: Rio Ferdinand makes U-turn, names club to win Premier League title this season

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has named Manchester City as the club to win this season’s Premier League title.

Ferdinand, who had before now picked Chelsea as his favourite, changed his mind after seeing Man City dominate Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

City are currently third in the EPL standing, one point behind Liverpool and two behind early leaders Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola’s side twice came from behind to secure a point against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Ferdinand, a former United defender, said he has seen enough from the Premier League title holders to rate them as his favourites for the title this season.

“It ebbs and flows man!” He said on the FIVE YouTube channel.

“In the first four of five games of the season, I was sitting there and thinking Chelsea are the team to beat.

“Three of four games later and I’m thinking Man City are the team to beat. They have looked seriously impressive against the big teams.

“They dominated Chelsea away [last weekend], they dominated Liverpool in the first half [on Sunday] and should have seen the game off.

“They might be a bit disappointed with a 2-2 draw but they look the most impressive to me. They look formidable at times.

“There’s no doubt they’re going to dominate 99 per cent of their games but it’s just about the finishing.

“When they get over that element and get that right, I think they are the team to beat.

“Manchester City have got the experience and the class and the players. They seem to be head and shoulders above everyone else tactically.”
