Manchester City are favourites for next season’s Premier League, believes Alex Iwobi.

And the Nigeria international says City’s success will continue into the 2019-20 season, with pre-season just around the corner.
He told Sky Sports they will start as favourites: ‘Everyone thought that last season, but Liverpool give them a tough challenge as well.
‘So, you never know what could happen. I’m sure every club’s going to invest and try and get their team right.
‘Pre-season’s coming up really soon, so everyone’s trying to get ready for the season to start.
‘It’s hard to say right now whether Man City are going to dominate, but they could be favourites, considering they won it again.’
