Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen: Man City are the team to beat
Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen believes Manchester City are the team to beat in the Premier League this season
Jan Vertonghen believes Manchester City are the best team in the Premier League.
The Belgium international is expected to be part of Tottenham Hotspur’s side which takes on Manuel Pellegrini’s men at The Etihad on Sunday.
Whilst Arsenal are currently top of the Premier League, Vertonghen feels the Citizens are the team to beat in the English top-flight.
“City I think is the best team in the league,” Vertonghen told Sky Sports News.
“Arsenal are doing very well of course. But especially in home games, City is the team to beat.”
Vertonghen revealed Belgium and City captain Vincent Kompany feels it will be one of the closest Premier League title races in memory this season.
“It’s really crazy,” Vertonghen added.
“I think if we’d won against Newcastle, we’d be joint second now – but we’re seventh.
“It’s unbelievable how we play City and United next. It’s very hard this year. (Vincent) Kompany already said it will be the toughest league in years to finish top. We have to be at our best to finish in the top four.”
