Man City aren't favourites, Arsenal are - Negredo

Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo believes his side are not the Premier League favourites.

The 2012 champions were beaten 1-0 at home by Chelsea on Monday night to fall two points behind league leaders Arsenal and Negredo feels it is they who should be installed as the most favoured club to win.

Negredo was speaking in regards to comments made by Blues boss Jose Mourinho suggesting that City were indeed the title fancies.

"He's throwing balls out," Negredo said of Mourinho. "A week ago he said we weren't favourites and now he says we are.

"The favourite right now is Arsenal and we still have to play against them.

"We must do our best until the end of the season and then we will see who is the best."
