After the runaway, Premier League leaders powered to a 3-1 victory at Goodison Park, Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti congratulated Manchester City and proclaimed them the champions-elect.
“I think so. It’s really difficult to say another name,” Ancelotti said according to the Daily Mail.
“Man City, at this moment, are in a good mood. They have fantastic quality, they have belief, they are strong.
“We tried to put the game on the strong side but it was difficult against Rodrigo, against [Ruben] Dias, against [Aymeric] Laporte.”
Further, Ancelotti says the best team Everton have faced this season is City and they will not be prevented from winning the trophy.
City have won their last 12 league matches, 17 in all competitions.
And Ancelotti can’t see any team preventing the high-flying side of Pep Guardiola from winning a fifth trophy in the Premier League and a seventh domestic crown in England.
