Alex Iwobi tips City to defend EPL title

Alex Iwobi has backed Manchester City to defend their Premier League crown and lift a historic third successive title.

Pep Guardiola’s side completed the domestic treble last month, pipping Liverpool by a single point to add the league to their League and FA Cup triumphs.

The Nigeria international says City’s success will continue into the 2019-20 season, with pre-season just around the corner.

“Everyone thought that last season, but Liverpool give them a tough challenge as well,”.

“So, you never know what could happen. I’m sure every club’s going to invest and try and get their team right.

“Pre-season’s coming up really soon, so everyone’s trying to get ready for the season to start.

“It’s hard to say right now whether Man City are going to dominate, but they could be favourites, considering they won it again.” Iwobi said.

Iwobi is currently with the Nigerian squad at the ongoing 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
