Are Man City still favourites to break the top four?
Moneybags Mancs aren’t as flash as first thought…
Lying in 6th, the table might show Man City are still in with a chance to crash the Big Four’s tedious party, but their fans seems to think otherwise.
Boos rang out on full time at City’s 3-all draw with Burnley - the club’s fifth successive draw in a row. After a £120m spending spree in the summer, taking five points from Aston Villa, Wigan, Fulham, Birmingham and Burnley might indicate a slight derailing of Manchester’s Emirati revolution.
So, with a post-suspension Adebayor decidedly quieter than he was at the start of the season, Lescott playing as if – surprise, surprise – he wasn’t worth £24m after all and Mark Hughes being increasingly found out as lacking the tactical acumen to change a game, are City still favourites to drag
Arsenal Liverpool out of the Premier League’s elite?
