Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists they're a long way off from being title favourites.

Long-time target Robin van Persie looks set to join Manchester United, Eden Hazard opted for Sunday's Community Shield opponents Chelsea, whilst Daniel Agger, Daniele de Rossi and Scott Sinclair also remain elusive despite being on City's radar.

"United start as favourites this year," said Mancini, ahead of Sunday's Community Shield showdown with Chelsea at Villa Park.
