Eriksson believes City will win the league

The former City boss is confident the club will win the league sooner or later.

Eriksson said: “Can they win the League? Of course they can. It would be exceptional if they did, of course.

“Who knows in football? Maybe. This season, perhaps, winning it would be too good to be true.

“If you want me to put £100 on Manchester City winning the league straight away, well, no I wouldn’t.

“But they will win the league sooner or later.”
