Manchester City have closed the gap at the top of the Premier League to three points after beating Wolves 2-0 at Molineux on Sunday.
A goal in each half by Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri sealed the win for the Etihad Stadium outfit, and set up a mouth-watering Manchester derby next Monday.
Roberto Mancini was happy with his team’s performance but still feels that United are favourites to win the league.
“They have a bigger chance, more than us. I think we have difficult games,” the Italian told Sky Sports.
“I’m pleased with our form. For now until the end we have three games, United, Newcastle and QPR.
“United? After us their games aren’t easy, but not as difficult as ours. I think we have another chance.
“We had more chances to score. That’s for sure. Because of this I’m unhappy because we had four or five chances to score and close the game before.
“I don’t think we did a good performance like we did against Norwich or West Brom.
“Today was important to win. I don’t feel we played a bad game, but our performance wasn’t perfect.
“I don’t know why. We needed to win this game maybe. I don’t know or maybe because we talked before the game that it might be easy.
“I told them before the game this would be difficult probably because this team doesn’t deserve to be on the bottom,” he concluded.
Wolves meanwhile have been relegated after the loss, but Terry Connor feels that the Midlands side have the ability to bounce back.
“Today’s a raw day for everyone connected with the club. The last thing anyone wants is to be relegated from the Premier League,” he confirmed.
“We have to make sure we dust ourselves off and look towards the future. I need to make sure we finish the season and finish it properly then we can sit down and discuss things.
“Over the next weeks you can bet Wolves will be back next season trying to regain Premier League status as quickly as we possibly can.”
