United favourites regardless – Mancini

City host United knowing three points would take them back to the top

“I am not surprised because in football, until you finish the championship or every game, anything can happen. But my opinion is always the same – I think they have more chance than us.

“We play the derby Monday and then afterwards Newcastle, that will be a very tough game, then after that QPR. Instead, United will play against Swansea and Sunderland and I think for them they will be two easy games. I think (even) if we win this game, they are favourites.”
