Mata: Too Early To Call City Champions

Manchester United midfielder, Juan Mata believes it is too early in the league to call Manchester City champions.

Guardiola’s men are high flyers in the league, winning 14 out of 15 games and are yet to lose, holding an eight points lead over United in second place.

Manchester United host their cross city counterparts on Sunday at Old Trafford, and Mata is looking for the win.

“They’re doing good and winning a lot of games, Mata said of City. “They’re scoring nice goals, but I think we’re doing our bit as well. We’ll try to show on Sunday that we can play very good football and we can win the three points.

“It’s a very special game, we all know that, especially because of the position we both are in the table.

“We play against City at Old Trafford and it’s one of those games that everyone wants to play, one of those really special games the Premier League has.”

“It’s difficult for everyone to win every single game, so we’re waiting for that,” the Spaniard said.

“It’s very difficult, especially in the Premier League. When you play Watford, Stoke, West Ham away or whatever, it’s very difficult to win every single game and we need to be ready if they drop points.

“I remember a few seasons ago (in 2011-12) when United were ahead of City by eight points and then City won on goal difference.

“It’s a crazy league and it’s too early to think that it’s finished — from City, they will tell you the same.”
