Wenger: Man City stronger favourites than Liverpool

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has rejected the suggestion that Premier League leaders Liverpool are favourites for the title, ESPN has reported, with Wenger insisting that it is Manchester City in the driving seat.

The Reds lead the way by two points from Chelsea, with the Blues two points ahead of City. But City have two games in hand on the pair above and should they win those games, would be two points clear of Liverpool.


Liverpool host Chelsea and City this month but Wenger has told a Press conference that Liverpool’s chance of claiming a first title since 1990 is far from certain. “Mathematically it is possible,” Wenger said.


“Why do I say that? I don't know more than you. Nobody knows, that is why it is interesting. It is a possibility yes that they can win the Premier League.


“City have two games in hand and the two games are at home, where they strong in the Premier League. So they have a huge advantage. There are still a lot of twists and turns in the Premier League until the end of the season and there is no clear favourite.


“Liverpool has an advantage as they don't play any competition other than the Premier League for a long, long time so they have only one target and they can of course be stable in their preparation. That is a little advantage, but it is very tight.”


Wenger added that Arsenal, currently fourth and travelling to fifth-place Everton on Sunday, are also still in contention for the title. The Gunners are seven points behind Liverpool and Wenger says his team can still compete.


“For us [Everton] is an opportunity to go up forward and as well an opportunity to make a distance with Everton of course,” the Frenchman added. “It's both. As I told you after the last game against Man City, we look in front of us and behind us as well. That's what the game is about on Sunday.”
