Manchester United ‘Class of ’92’ legend Phil Neville reckons not only do City have the edge over United in this season’s title race, but are the most exciting team on the continent right now.
In his diary for Sky Sports, Neville wrote, “After another 5-0 victory, you’ve got to say Manchester City are the most exciting side in Europe right now with the number of goals they are scoring.
“They’ll obviously have bigger tests but they are absolutely sensational to watch, and the pleasing thing for Pep Guardiola is that the team are keeping clean sheets as well.
“I would say the Manchester clubs are looking the best in the Premier League right now, with City shading it over United as favourites, but the question is whether that style can win them the title, because we know Jose Mourinho can deliver it with his approach.
“City are the most exciting side in the Premier League and you wouldn’t want to be playing them at the moment, but United don’t have to play them until November, so Mourinho has a lot of time to assess them.”
There is little between the Manchester clubs after six sets of fixtures except goal difference, with Guardiola’s side leading the table with a +19 goal difference compared to United’s +15. A superior goal difference may be irrelevant by the end of the season, but who can forget the epic 2011/12 season finale?
