Wenger: Man Utd still favourites

The Gunners boss feels United’s game in hand gives them a great advantage, despite losing to Liverpool last weekend.

“There are two things I’d like to say. Firstly, congratulations to Liverpool for winning with an emphatic score, but I think… it is a very flattering score,” Wenger is quoted as saying in The Independent.

“For big spells in the game, Manchester United dominated but they made mistakes on the day that usually they don’t do. Some players looked a bit mentally tired.

“It opens up the race for the title, even though I still believe Manchester United are in a strong position with the game in hand.”
