David Silva reveals the “only team” that can compete for Guardiola glory while dismissing big spenders.

The only team, in David Silva’s opinion, that can seriously contend with Manchester City’s hegemony in the Premier League this year is Arsenal.

The Citizens have won five of the last six Premier League championships and the previous three.

With victories over Inter Milan in the Champions League final and Manchester United in the FA Cup final, they achieved a fantastic treble last season.

However, manager Pep Guardiola has strengthened his team over the summer and is not content to sit back and enjoy his success.

Mateo Kovacic, Jeremy Doku, Matheus Nunes, and Josko Gvardiol have all been enlisted.

Aymeric Laporte, Cole Palmer, Riyad Mahrez, and Ilkay Gundogan’s departure was partially offset by their capture.

The north-west giants have already proven that they don’t need a few games to find their groove.

They were the sole Premier League team with a perfect record going into the international break.

After four games, they are in first place thanks to victories over Fulham, Burnley, Newcastle United, Sheffield United, and Newcastle.

For City’s competitors, many of whom made significant off-season purchases, it already appears ominous.

Silva supports Man City for continued success.

To bring players like Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, and Jurrien Timber to the Emirates, Arsenal dug deep and spent close to £200 million.

Time will tell whether it is sufficient to unseat the champions.

But Silva, a former City star, thinks that no team, aside from the Gunners, has a real chance of winning the championship.

According to him, “They [City] have an amazing team with some amazing players.” he said to The Mirror.

Pep is in his eighth campaign with City.

He was still adjusting to the Premier League his first year, but they are now virtually unbeatable.

Arsenal is the only team that I can think of that might have a shot at challenging City.

I doubt they can for the remainder.

With 436 appearances for Manchester City across all competitions, Silva can speak with authority.

At the Etihad, the former Spanish international won two FA Cups and four Premier League championships.

Additionally, before joining Real Sociedad in 2020, he amassed five EFL Cup winners medals.

Having played professionally for 20 years, the 37-year-old decided to hang up his boots over the summer.

Ever since he left, he has seen his old team dominate English football.

And the man who represented Spain in 125 matches believes they are the team to beat.

Arsenal leads the pack of pursuers.

After 38 games, Arsenal finished the previous season in second place, five points behind City.

Manchester United, who came in third, trailed by 14 points, and Newcastle United, who came in fourth, trailed by 18 points.

While the Magpies also did a good job of hiring over the summer, United has brought in some talented players.

However, Chelsea’s spending has drawn attention.

Before going on a massive spending binge, Mauricio Pochettino let go of a number of players.

Silva believes that the Blues will finish behind Arsenal and that they will not yet be back on the path to Premier League glory.
