With Liverpool set to take over as Premier
League champions, Manchester City should prioritise Europe and can still
have a “great season” if they win the Champions League, former England
striker Ian Wright has said.
City’s 2-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur
on Sunday was their sixth league defeat of the season, two more than in
the whole of the previous campaign, and left them 22 points behind
Liverpool, who are set to end a 30-year wait for a league title.
But Wright said City, who meet Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League this month, can still salvage their season.
