Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has, finally, admitted that his side are in pole position to win the Premier League.
His side defeated Newcastle United 2-0 at St James’ Park thanks to a Yaya Toure brace late in the second-half.
The victory means they go into the last day of the season at the top of division as they face QPR, knowing victory will seal a maiden Premier League title win, unless Manchester United perform goalscoring miracles.
And after weeks of claiming his men were not in the in driving seat to win the division, Mancini finally admitted that his team were favourites to lift the trophy, he told Call Collymore: “Now, yes [but] it will be a difficult game because QPR are a good and are playing [to avoid] relegation.
He added: “It was difficult because Nasri played a good game but I thought Yaya, in that position, could be very, very strong.”
