We are weaker in some areas, but we've got a great squad and we've got a great first 11.
This title race will be won on fine margins. It'll probably go down to goal difference..
Our wide players are without question superior. Defensively it is far closer than many will care to admit.
Clichy, Kolarov, Richards and Zabaleta certainly give them the edge over our fullbacks but obviously we have the better centre backs. Although I would say
Lescott is one of the leagues most improved players.
Joe Hart for now, without doubt their midfield and sadly up front they have us beaten.
It is not a huge gulf by any means. But looking at this season it is hard to argue who has the better squad. We have done remarkably well to nearly win it.
We do have loads of potential. But will take time. In the meanwhile they will not wait for potential and add more established stars.
Lets hope they do a Chelsea, as we have seen with Ballack and Shevchenko.
