Citeh have improved but I am not sure they're favorites.
You can't win the league with a shit defence though, it's a fundamental.
But they've spent more than us so they're favourites.
You're right, but you can win by having a just good enough to beat 15 of the 19 teams and let your attack worry about the big teams
Or have some of the smaller teams brick it when they show up to play you because OMG Mourinho! We're doomed!
Winning the league isn't about beating United home and away, it's about beating the other 14 to 17 teams home and away (depending on how you view Arsenal, Spurs, Liverpool as make up the numbers dross or in with a shot at top 4)
