Yorke also believes the new season will provide one of the most competitive title races in years - but he has dismissed the hype that up to six teams can claim the championship. For him, it will come down to the big three; United, City and Chelsea.
“It will be much closer than it was last season,” Dwight explained. “We lost two years ago on goal difference and I think it may come down to something like that again this year.
“I think the teams are that close. Just the three teams though, not the rest – I’m not too worried about them. I think Chelsea and City are the two who will be looking to take the title away from us.
“You have got to respect Chelsea, they have a fantastic squad and City have just spent £100million, although they do have a coach who is untested in this league – which will be a challenge for him. But those are the two big rivals and I expect it to be nip and tuck until the end.”
