Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva believes the title race this season will much tighter than before, One Football reported.
Liverpool and Manchester City have been close to hitting nearly 100 points on the Premier League standings for the past two seasons but this time it might be tricky due to lack adequate rest and preseason preparations.
Injuries are also cause for concern, the latest being Virgil van Dijk who has been ruled for approximately three months with a knee injury - a massive blow for Liverpool.
“It’s good to know that all the matches are going to be difficult now, no matter which teams are involved.
“We’ll have to work even harder this season to beat everybody. I think the Premier League became even more competitive this season.
"All the teams made great signings and strengthened their squads.”
