Manchester City team won a treble last season and were awarded “the Club of the Season” at the Ballon d’Or Ceremony. With their current form, the team looks flawless and unstoppable at times. Yet they lost the EFL third-round game against Newcastle United and FA Community Shield to Arsenal. So, looking at the same we have identified some improvement points that would help them ensure the Premier League title. If they do so, City will be the first team to win four Premier League Championships in a row.

Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, and Arsenal are in the title race and they have their own space to improve.

Three things Manchester City needs to improve on

1 . Replacement for Rodri

Manchester City is said to have talented players at every position and could win championships even without their star players. This season only they have fared well without their captain Kevin De Bruyne and had the privilege to rest Haaland. But one player that Manchester City has not been able to replace is Rodri.

The talented midfielder plays a catalyst in City’s offense and controls the pace of the game. Pep Guardiola has not found any “able” replacement for Rodri since Gundogan’s move to Barca. More interestingly three of the Man City’s four losses so far had been without Rodri on the field. De Bruyne’s return will soften the blow, but still, City should scout a potent successor for Rodri.

 2. Aggression leading to needless free kicks

Manchester City plays aggressive football creating many chances and pressing in defense. The technique proved fruitful so far for them, as they won five league titles in six seasons. They have conceded many needless free-kicks, which would have been converted into goals. Moreover, players are getting into the books, and regarding the previous point, Rodri is one card away from suspension.

3. Clearing up the medical room

No matter how deep you have your squad, injuries have always played a spoiler role in their progress. The brilliance of players like De Bruyne is needed in the big games. Pep Guardiola has a very big squad and even players like Doku and Akanji are making huge contributions in the games, and could even make it to the first team of many Premier League sides. Nevertheless, having an influential player in the recovery room for a longer period would affect them against competent opponents like Liverpool, whom they will host this coming Sunday.

We have a blockbuster game in hand in the early afternoon at Manchester. Liverpool and Manchester City are separated by a point only, making the game even more exciting-.
