Fulham boss Jol convinced Man City have advantage on Man Utd

Fulham boss Martin Jol feels Manchester City can get back into the title race thanks to their Champions League elimination.

Jol suspects Roberto Mancini's side will fight back on the home straight as they do not have the distraction of the Champions League or Europa League.

He said: "All the top three are fighting for everything. Last year City were a bit lucky, scoring in the final seconds (against QPR to win the league). It was quite exciting. There is not a lot between these top sides.

"They are out of Europe but they can live with it and can now focus on the league. That is probably one of the advantages they have over other teams like Manchester United."
