Riyad Mahrez reveals seven teams that can win Premier League this season
Riyad Mahrez names seven teams that can win Premier League this season.
Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez has revealed seven teams that can win the Premier League title this campaign.
The goal of Pep Guardiola’s team is to retain the league championship and win the English Premier League for the fifth time in six seasons.
Manchester City has made a good start to the 2022-23 campaign, amassing 29 points from their opening 12 league matches. After Arsenal defeated Nottingham Forest 5-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, City is now in second place in the Premier League.
Tottenham bounced back from back-to-back league losses to win at Bournemouth on Saturday, maintaining the third place, two points ahead of Newcastle United, who are doing well under Eddie Howe.

Currently, Fulham and Brighton sit seventh and eighth in the league, ahead of Liverpool, who has only won a third of their games this season.
‘Even Liverpool, they are away from us at the moment, but I still think they can be there at the end of the season. All the top six [and Liverpool] can challenge us for the Premier League and all of the other trophies.’
While Mahrez expects Liverpool to challenge for trophies this season, Klopp says his team will struggle to finish in the top four unless they improve.
‘You can’t qualify for the Champions League if you play as inconsistently as we do at the moment,’ Klopp said after Liverpool’s shock defeat to Leeds United. ‘We have to fix that.
‘So many things are unlike us in this moment. I am sorry it is like this, but that is the situation. I am not sure how deep you can dig, but we will. It is like it is and we will work on solutions. We have to have a look at this game first, try to understand it a bit more and go from there.’
