Trevor Sinclair has boldly claimed that Manchester City are the ‘elite team in the Premier League’ over title rivals Liverpool.
Speaking on talkSport, the former Cityzens man suggested that the points tallies accrued between the two sides weren’t an accurate reflection of where both outfits stand.
It’s difficult, however, to argue with the fact that only a point separates Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp’s men since August 2018, with the ex-winger failing to take into account our injury-hit campaign of 2020/21.
There’s absolutely no questioning the fact that the incumbent champions have been nothing short of exceptional since the Spaniard linked up with the Etihad role, but we shouldn’t be quick to discount just how impressive we’ve likewise been of late.

Only 1 game and that was the red card to Sadio Mane.
How much have City Illegaly spent on transfers and broken the FFP rules?
