Despite a mediocre start to this season, Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini remains confident his side will be lifting the Premier League title once again come what May.
The Italian, facing the media ahead of City’s trip to Fulham this weekend, has seen his side draw on three occasions already this season in their opening five league engagements. However, Mancini has today maintained his belief that his side will come out on top once again.
“I think this year all these teams are better teams and probably every game will be more difficult than last year.”
Mancini, 47, then added: “I agree that it is more difficult the second year but we will win the title.”
Roberto may think City will win the title, but the bookies no longer have them as favourites. Neighbours United now lead the market at around the 6/4 mark, while City can be backed at as big as 15/8. Chelsea are generally priced at 7/2, and Arsenal, well you can have 9/1 on Arsene Wenger’s men going all the way.
