Mancini accepts title chances
Roberto Mancini knows that his Manchester City team are favourites to lift the Premier League title after victory at Newcastle.
City will head into their final game of the campaign at home to relegation-haunted QPR sitting at the top of the table and knowing victory will deliver the prize they have craved for the last 44 years. Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admitted in the wake of the win on Tyneside that his club's arch-rivals might have both hands on the trophy, and while Mancini is refusing to look any further ahead that next weekend's game, he knows their destiny remains in their own hands. Asked if City are now favourites, the Italian said: "Maybe, maybe yes because it depends on us. "If we beat QPR, we will be the champions. But at this moment, we can't think about this. We need to prepare very well for the next game, only this. "I am excited because we are on the top, but it's not enough. One week more and if we play like we did here, we have a lot of chance to win."
