Man City should be title favourites, says O`Neill
Manchester: Manchester City should be considered favourites to win the Premier League after splashing out millions of pounds in the transfer market over the close season, said Aston Villa manager Martin O`Neill.
"City might not be favourites to win the league but they should be," O`Neill was quoted as saying in British media. "If (Kolo) Toure comes -- and they still haven`t stopped spending -- they have as good a chance as anyone of winning it.”
Arsenal defender Toure is set to join City on Wednesday for a fee of about 16 million pounds (USD 26.20 million). They have already signed forwards Emmanuel Adebayor, Carlos Tevez and Roque Santa Cruz plus midfielder Gareth Barry.
