Manchester united Manager, Jose Mourinho on Friday confessed that the Premier league title race is over.
Currently ,there are 13 matches remaining for the EPL 2017/2018 season to come to an end and if the both side (Man city and Man utd) continues the way they are playing, it will be very difficult for Man city to drop points and at the same time very difficult for Manchester united to outshine Manchester city for the title.
Mourinho had long resisted such sweeping claims in recent months, but Manchester City’s 15-point lead has deflated even the Portuguese’s confidence.
“We are trying to become first of the last,” he told reporters, according to the BBC. “We want to finish second.
“Manchester City are doing so well. Not letting the others come close. With the number of points we have (53), in normal conditions that would leave the fight open. It is open for second, third, fourth, but practically closed for first.”
City won its first 18 matches to break an English top-flight record and, more importantly, create a nearly insurmountable gap at the summit.
“City started strongly,” Mourinho said. “Managed to win matches even when they didn’t deserve (anything). I give credit.”
