Pellegrini refuses to talk up Man City favourites' tag

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is refusing to consider their title chances.

City strengthened their status as favourites last week as they won at Hull while Chelsea slipped to defeat at Aston Villa.

That took them within six points of leaders Chelsea with three games in hand.

Despite that, Pellegrini is refusing to endorse any favourites' tag.

He said: "We continue in the fight for the title with all the other teams.

"We have to play the three games we have in hand and we will see how we play those games, but at the moment I think the four teams have the same options.

"You have to win the games (in hand) so the important thing is it just depends on what we do in the future."
