Roberto Mancini insisted Manchester United will still be favourites for the EPL title, even if City win Monday's derby at Eastlands.

Manchester United have seen an eight-point advantage slip away thanks to a defeat at Wigan and last weekend’s 4-4 draw with Everton.

A win will move City level on points with just two matches remaining. But Mancini said: “They have more chance than us because we after the derby we play Newcastle, that will be a very tough game. But United play Swansea and Sunderland, for them, they will be two easy games. Even if we win this game, they are favourites.”
