London: Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has dismissed the notion that this season’s Premier League is a two-horse race between the Manchester clubs.

Both Manchester United and Manchester City have won their opening four games and scored 33 goals, a leading daily reports.

Some pundits have already written off the chasing pack, including Chelsea and Arsenal.

The 30-year-old, however, insists that it would be a mistake to dismiss other clubs.

“I don’t think it is a two-horse race by any means. If you remember the start Chelsea had last season, everyone said they were going to win it. Obviously that didn’t happen,” Carrick said.
