Horror Manchester City ten year stat good news for Liverpool and other title contenders

Manchester City’s attacking figures in their opening seven Premier League fixtures are good news for Liverpool and the other title contenders.

Since the turn of the previous decade, and Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, City have been the team to beat in the Premier League. If you finished ahead of them, the chances are you’d be on the top of the pile.

After two consecutive Premier League title wins, Liverpool were successful in dethroning Man City last time around, much to the delight of Jurgen Klopp.

Pep Guardiola’s new contract may well give Man City a lift, with the Spaniard ending speculation over his future, but there’s been no clarification over City’s capability to contend this season.

Even with Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus having struggled with injuries, they’ve looked completely ineffective in attack. It’s good news for Liverpool, and anyone else hoping to win the league this term.

    What on earth is this supposed to mean. As a jounalist your supposed to write in English not double dutch.
    Perhaps as a journalist you should have come up with reasons why City have scored so few goals this season. Reasons such as:
    Aguero and Jesus have hardly played this season.
    Late playing of Champions League matches from last season meant their preseason barely existed
    They have had more first team injuries (16) than any other premiere league team. etc
    In case you hadn’t noticed this year is a very different year to any other. The ramifications of Covid 19 have changed everything including football.
