Roberto Mancini insists his Manchester City side should not be regarded as title favourites yet, despite their thumping of Manchester United on Sunday.
City stunned Old Trafford with a 6-1 demolition of the Premier League champions and are now five points clear of their local rivals at the top of the table and 11/10 with bookmaker to win the title.
However, Mancini has played down the importance of the win and believes his team must win the title before they can be regarded as better than Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
“I still think United are one yard above us, still,” he said.
“I think we can only change this after we win the title in the end. After, maybe it will be different, but now United are better than us.”
