Manchester City are in a great form this season and are early favorites to win the league. But, Chelsea defender Gary Cahill thinks there is still a long way to go in the pursuit of Premier League glory.
Gary Cahill thinks it is too early to predict
The citizens are unbeaten in the league, 8 points clear of Manchester United on the top of the table. They have already scored 40 goals in the league and are running away in the title race. But, the Chelsea captain thinks otherwise.
“They’ve started off full steam ahead and that’s great for them, but we’re not even at Christmas yet, so let’s just hold fire and see how they get on.”, the Englishman told Chelsea’s official website.
He further said,“They look fantastic at the moment and we have taken a fair bit of criticism at times this season, but we’ve had three clean sheets on the bounce in the league now, it was a great performance and we’ve got a long way still to go.”

4-0 Victory against West Brom
The league champions are 9 points behind Guardiola’s men but are in great form and blasted 4 goals past West Bromwich on the weekend.
Gary Cahill praised his team for their performance at the Hawthorns.
He said, “I have to admit it was a superb performance from us, from every single player, and collectively we are very happy.”
“I felt we played some good football, we kept the ball when we needed to and we scored goals. We saw a bit of everything from us, so performance-wise it was very, very good.”

The 4-0 result was also the reason of West Brom manager Tony Pulis’s sacking as the Baggies are just one point clear of relegation zone.
Chelsea will travel to Azerbaijan for their Champions League match against Qarabag Fk. The victory will confirm Chelsea’s place in the Round of 16. The Blues will continue chasing Manchester City to defend their title with a trip to Anfield on Saturday.
We are just in November and it is definitely too early to predict anything. After all football one hell of an unpredictable game. But Manchester City are in the league of their own and there seems to be no stopping to Pep’s men. Something needs to go very wrong at Etihad Stadium in order to make Gary Cahill’s comments true.
