John Terry has told talkSPORT that he believes Man City will win the Premier League this season.
Pep Guardiola’s side appear to have finally hit their stride and now sit joint top of the table, level on points with Manchester United while having two games in hand.
City have won eight consecutive league games and are unbeaten since November.
When asked who he believes will lift the trophy at the end of the season, Terry told Tuesday’s Sports Bar: “I’ve said Man City from the start.
“We [Aston Villa] played against them recently, and they are the kind of team that, no matter how you play, if they are on it, they can beat anyone in the league.
“I think they are the best team, they have the best individuals, and when they are at it they are by far the best team.
“They are showing that with their recent run.
“When you play against them the movement is incredible and you really don’t know what to do.
“It’s one of those games where you come off and can only learn from it really, how well they move and the options they give each other on the pitch. They make it so difficult for the opposition team.
“So they are the ones for me.”
Terry knows what it takes to win the Premier League title, having done so five times with Chelsea.
The Blues legend claimed the crown in 2004/05, 2005/06, 2009/10, 2014/15 and 2016/17.
He is now an Aston Villa assistant coach and enjoying a positive season with the Villans, who are ninth in the table having played fewer games than many of the teams around them.
