Former defender of Manchester United and Arsenal, Mikael Sylvester, shared his views on the upcoming fight for victory in the English Premier League. “In my opinion, this season there are only three teams participating in the championship race: Manchester United, Liverpool, and, perhaps, I will add Leicester to them. This is an unusual season and it is good for United to be in the race instead of playing catch-up and looking at opponents from afar. Now you need to stay at the top. At the moment the team is in a very good position, « Sylvester is quoted by Goal.com with reference to Ladbrokes. Manchester United are ranked first in the Premier League standings with 36 points in 17 rounds. Liverpool (33) are on the second line. Manchester City (32) are in third place, ahead of Leicester in additional stats and with a game in hand.
