United and City are the most effective two unbeaten groups in England’s best flight.
City romped to a 6-Zero win away to Watford on their final league time out, whilst United brushed apart Everton Four-Zero at Old Trafford.
United haven’t lifted the title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
The two Manchester opponents went head-to-head for the title in 2012, and City clinched it when Sergio Aguero scored a dramatic last-gasp winner in opposition to QPR at the Etihad.
And whilst suggesting it’s not a two-horse race for the title, Vassell has conceded he wouldn’t mind if it used to be United and City vying for England’s best prize.
“I wouldn’t say it’s just between Man City and Man Utd,” Vassell advised Express Sport.
“I are aware of it appears that manner at the second. The approach during which they’re each successful suits – it’s so emphatic and they are not conceding as neatly so you’ll be able to’t ask for a lot more.
“But can groups lift that on for the complete season? The final time that came about used to be the nice Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ facet below Arsene Wenger.
“I believe there is sufficient high quality in the Premier League – we have were given Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool and Arsenal too.
“We’ve were given some large groups who, in the event that they get into their stride, it’ll be thrilling to look what they’re in a position to.
“So we mustn’t write off the title race simply but. If it went to the twine, and between City and Utd, it would make for an exhilarating climax to the season as we’ve got observed in the previous!”
United are in motion later as of late (3pm) away to Southampton, whilst City kick off at the similar time in opposition to Crystal Palace.
