Arsenal's Wenger: I can understand why Man City are favourites

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he understands why Manchester City are Premier League title favourites.

The Gunners are back on top of the table following Sunday's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace but City can return to the mantle if they beat third-placed Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night.

Many people believe that the title is City's if they can avoid any slip-ups and Wenger tends to agree.

"I can understand that completely because we haven't done it for a while, and as well I must say that we face quality competitors," he said.

"We do not play against average teams and Man City have scored over 100 goals, so everybody thinks 'can you beat these teams?' I say yes and that is what we have to show.

"It is all to do. The only thing I can say is that after 24 games we are there, and it's now about how we finish the season."
