Van Nistelrooy tips Man City for the title

Ex-Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has told talkSPORT that Manchester City are now favourites to win the Premier League, and that the 6-1 win at Old Trafford last weekend now means it is City’s title to lose.

Upon being asked whether he believed Manchester City were now favourites to win the league, van Nistelrooy gave a refreshingly honest answer. “I think at the moment definitely because they are up there and with the run of form they are having lately. The win at Old Trafford obviously makes them the favourites for the title this year.

The Dutch international spent five years at Old Trafford and now plays his football for Malaga in Spain, and he still hopes that his former employers can turn Sunday’s defeat around and get back to form. “As an ex-United player, I hope that in the end, in his [Ferguson’s] 25th year as a manager, he will win another league.
