Graeme Souness believes the current Manchester City squad is the best he has ever seen in the Premier League, saying Pep Guardiola has an ‘incredible’ array of players at the club.
City suffered a surprise defeat on Saturday, losing 2-1 to Leeds United, but they are still strolling to win the Premier League.
Guardiola’s side are currently 14 points clear of the chasing pack, and even though Manchester United still have two games in hand, the title race appears to be over.
Souness feels the squad at the club is better than any he has seen in English football, and was praising Chelsea when he came to that conclusion.
The former Liverpool manager claims the Blues have the second best squad in the Premier League right now, but City are operating on another level.
‘They’re in a great position,’ Souness told Sky Sports of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea. ‘When you look at the team that started for Chelsea today and the subs.
‘I would put Chelsea in having the 2nd best squad in the Premier League behind Manchester City. City have got an incredible squad, I would go as far to say it’s the best squad I’ve ever seen in English football.’
With Chelsea’s strikers failing to score regularly this campaign, Souness believes that they are just one prolific frontman away from being title challengers.
‘Chelsea have the second best squad now,’ he said. ‘Other than having an out and out 25-30 goals a season man, they’re pretty near the finished article. If they can land one in the summer they’ll be very dangerous.’
