Galatasaray boss Roberto Mancini believes former side Manchester City are in the best position to win the Premier League this season.

The Italian guided the Blues to their thrilling triumph back in 2012 as Sergio Aguero’s last-gasp winner against Queens Park Rangers saw them snatch the title from rivals Man United on the final day of the season.

And he believes they should be considered favourites this time out under Manuel Pellegrini, as they battle Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal for top spot, due to the strength of their squad.
