Manchester City Are Premier League Favorites - Ander Herrera

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has tipped Manchester City as title favorites not because they are better but because of the pressure due to spending so much during the summer.

Manchester City cannot be differentiated from United after five games, both teams topping the Premier League table with 13 points, 16 goals scored and two goals conceded.

The Spaniard believes it is a moral obligation for a team that spent so much during the summer to contend for the title add with the frustrations of finishing last season without a silverware.

Pep Guardiola spent over £200m in the acquisition of Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker, Ederson and Danilo during the summer which has directly paid off, as the team recorded a perfect start to the Premier League campaign.

"We won three titles last season [the Community Shield, League Cup and Europa League] and Man City didn't win anything," Herrera told reporters "They are under pressure. They are obligated to win something. They have more obligation than us.

"City have spent the biggest amount in the Premier League so they are the principle contenders for the title and We have quality as well, but because of the money they have spent, they are the favourites".

"We will try to be there. There is pressure when you spend a lot but there is also pressure on us because we are the biggest club in England. But you know when you play for United that you are under an obligation to win things and I like that obligation."
