Antonio Conte fears one club signing Virgil van Dijk in January

After another ruthless display of dominance at the weekend, the question is surely when, not if, the title will be Manchester City’s.

Pep Guardiola’s men remain unbeaten after blitzing Tottenham 4-1, a scoreline which might have been heavier had Gabriel Jesus converted his penalty.

The Catalan has created something truly magic at the Etihad, aided of course by spending over £450million since his arrival in 2016.

There are suggestions he could dip into the market once again in January as while his side need little improving on paper, things could still do with tightening up at the back.

Amid reports that they will attempt to beat Liverpool to Virgil van Dijk in the forthcoming transfer window, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has insisted the Premier League’s other top clubs cannot allow City to buy a player who will make them even more unstoppable.

“Every team, every club, must pay great attention,” Conte was quoted by Goal.

“Because if a club like Manchester City takes all the best players, it will be very difficult for us to fight. Not only in England but in Europe.

“If they can do this, it is right for them to do this. We must pay great respect.

“When you have this opportunity to go in the market to spend a lot of money, I think it is right to do this.”

Van Dijk has not quite reached the levels he did last season this time around, having suffered ligament damage in January and missing the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

Liverpool were hot favourites to sign the Dutchman in the summer but were forced to withdraw their interest after Southampton accused them of tapping the centre-back up.
