Manchester United still favourites to win title: Wenger

London: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger still believes that Manchester United are favourites to win the title.

After United’s defat at the hands of Arsenal, victory for Chelsea next Sunday will see them take the top spot above United on goal difference.

Yet Wenger believes United’s home form will be enough, despite yesterday’s defeat in North London, to win the title, The Sun reports.

Wenger said: “The best position remains Man United’s and second best is Chelsea’s because they have to play United next week. I still make United strong favourites because when you play at home for the title you have an advantage.”

“If we want to have a small chance, it is in our interests for Chelsea to win and for us to win our games. Then it``s mathematically possible. But I still say United has the advantage. Every year they win the title at Old Trafford.

“If you compare our away records we are always really comparable. They get their points at Old Trafford,” Wenger added.
