Defense Will Be Key

One thing that Manchester City has never been short of is attacking quality and goal scoring. With players like Aguero, Silva, Negredo and Dzeko, the kind of quality that our squad boasts up front is undisputable.

Where we can be let down, at times, is in defence. And, no, I’m not saying that we lack quality in defensive positions. Vincent Kompany is probably the best centre back in the league and Pablo Zabaleta is also one of the finest in the full-back position. Martin Demichelis and Aleksandar Kolarov are no scrubs in their positions either.

However, we often find ourselves lacking in strength in depth. In the centre back position we are often worn pretty thin over the course of the season. This does look to change, though. Eliaquim Mangala’s signing is evidence of this and with him in our team, we really have a lot of strength in defence.

If our defence can show the kind of quality I’m expecting, I have little doubt that we will be able to retain the Premier League title in 2014/15.
