Shaun Wright-Phillips names club to win title, toughest defender he ever faced
Shaun Wright-Phillips, a former Manchester City midfielder, has endorsed Pep Guardiola's side to win the Premier League title ahead of Liverpool.
Former Chelsea player Ashley Cole was also named by Wright-Phillips as the toughest defender he has ever faced in his career.
Right now, I don’t think there is any other team that I think could challenge them [Manchester City and Liverpool], and they both want to be among the best teams in the world, "Wright-Phillips told Sportskeeda.
“There are still a lot of tricky games to come for both sides, so it is not as cut and dry as it seems to me, as City always approaches one game at a time, as does Liverpool." We are still in a good position to win it and I think we will [eventually win the PL title this season].”
Asked to name the toughest defender he played against in his career, the 39-year-old added, “The toughest opponent would definitely have to be Ashley Cole. He never dived into tackles and liked to run a bit too much for my liking, so he would definitely be the hardest defender I faced. ”
