Rodgers insists Man City favourites to win PL title despite Liverpool`s `good show`

London: Liverpool managerBrendan Rodgers has insisted that Manchester City are favourites to win thePremier League this season, despite seeing his side beatCardiff 3-1 and go top of the table, according to reports.

According to the BBC, the Reds lead City by one point ahead of their Boxing Day trip to EtihadStadium but could be overtaken if Arsenal beat Chelsea on Monday.

Rodgers said that he still believes the title is Manchester City`s to lose, adding that they have the strongest squad and the resources they have are incredible.

If Liverpool top the table at Christmas, it would be the first time they have done so since 2008-09, when they went on to finish second, the report added.
