"It would need a meltdown from Manchester United for them not to win the league, it depends on them," said the Czech Republic international.
"It is a new situation for Manchester City, trying to defend the title. There are a lot of players in their squad who have never faced the situation.
"You can see they are behind and the pressure is on them and they have to fight with that. It is always easier when you win a first title.
"It is always worse to defend it because you are the team to beat and it becomes tougher."
