What kind of Manchester United fan believes City's going to win the title even before a ball is kicked?

That's Mamelodi Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie, the New Zealand player who supports the Red Devils down here in South Africa.

You'd have to be concerned that Jose Mourinho and Manchester United's transfer business, as well as the mood in the camp must be so low that United fan Brockie can't see past their fierce local rivals?

Or maybe he's trying to be as objective as possible and that this is one awesome Manchester City team. At least he didn't tip Liverpool to overtake City this season. That won't be a real United fan. 

Then Brockie goes on to predict that the Golden Boot will be between Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane. Yes, a real United fan ignoring Mohamed Salah there. What do you think?
