Roberto Mancini tipped his former club Manchester City to win the Premier League even after seeing his Galatasaray side outplayed by Chelsea.
The Blues went through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League by beating the Turkish team 2-0 at Stamford Bridge and 3-1 on aggregate.
Chelsea were hugely impressive, showing the kind of form that has put them top of the table, four points clear of second-placed Liverpool.
But Mancini still believes City, currently fourth but with three games in hand, will regain the title they won under him in 2012.
The Italian said: “Manchester City are the best team and have the best players.
“Liverpool are doing very well at this moment but I think it will be a fight between Chelsea and Man City and I think City has the best chance.”
