The former Manchester City footballer believes the team will only get better after getting is second English Premier League title in a row.

Former Manchester City footballer Paul Dickov believes that after the Citizens won back-to-back English Premier League titles, it can only mean the beginning of what could be a glorious trophy-laden era.

“I just think they are going to get better and better all the time,” Paul Dickov told Four Four Two.

“Look at the age of the squad. I know you’ve got Vincent (Kompany), Sergio (Aguero) and David (Silva) but look at Ederson, (Aymeric) Laporte, (John) Stones, (Benjamin) Mendy, Bernardo Silva, (Leroy) Sane, Raheem (Sterling), Gabriel Jesus – they’re all 23-24.”

“When you look at what they have won already at that young age and what they could go on to do, they are only going to get better,” he added.

“I thought last season would have been hard to beat – 100 points, 100 goals, breaking all sorts of records – but I think they have exceeded that this year.”

“For Liverpool to lose one game and finish on 97 points and not win the league shows you how good this Manchester City team are,” he continued.

“Back to the turn of the year Liverpool were seven points ahead and could have gone 10 points ahead when City played them, but City beat them and got it to four points.”

“It could have been seven after we lost to Newcastle, but then to go and win 14 games on the bounce shows you what a special team this is,” Dickov concluded.
