Goals from Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri overturned Chelsea’s 1-0 lead at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night to ensure City secured a crucial victory to keep to within one point of leaders United in the title race.
But Vidić, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in Basel back in December, is confident Sir Alex Ferguson’s side will retain their league crown.
“If you look at the schedule of the games we have left to play I would like to say we are the favourites,” Vidić told United’s website.
“We still have to win the nine games and we need to be focused. I would say we have nine Champions League final games now. But it’s all in our hands. We have to focus and give our best.
“All the players are ready to perform which is a good sign and a positive thing for the nine games ahead. We have the confidence – we’ve had the belief from the beginning of this season.”
