Manchester City are still favourites for the Premier League title despite their 1-0 loss to Chelsea on Monday, according to Petr Cech.

However, Cech echoed the sentiments of his manager Jose Mourinho and reiterated that Manuel Pellegrini’s side are still the front-runners to land the Premier League crown.
“If we had lost, they would have been six points in front of us. This way it’s level,” Cech wrote on his personal website.
“In my opinion, City are still the biggest favourites to win the title.
“Arsenal are two points above them but for us nothing changes. We are carrying on and need to confirm this win with another in the home match versus Newcastle.”
The Blues goalkeeper added: “It’s a great result and extremely important to us.
“We played well from start to finish and had plenty of bad luck as we hit the woodwork three times.
“We could have won by a higher margin but worked hard until the final whistle was blown and deserved to get the win.”
