Neville convinced Man City ahead of Liverpool in title battle

Manchester United legend Gary Neville rates Manchester City as title favourites ahead of Liverpool.

City hammered Chelsea 6-0 on Sunday to go back to the top of the table on goal difference from the Reds, although they have played a game more.

"If you look at the size of Liverpool and the fact they haven't won the title in so long, there is an air of desperation at the club to win the title," Neville told Sky Sports.

"A few weeks ago they were seven points clear and when Manchester City lost at Newcastle you thought it was there - what an opportunity for Liverpool that was.

"They still have that chance, but it has become a lot more difficult in the last week.

"Winning the title is obviously about performance, but the mental side is huge."
