Sir Alex Ferguson admitted yesterday it was 'game on' in the Premier League title race following Manchester United's 4-4 draw with Everton.

Ferguson said the initiative was now with City, claiming next Monday's clash between the two sides at the Etihad Stadium is now a title decider.

Roberto Mancini though said he still believes United are the favourites for the title, despite closing the gap on the league leaders to three points.

City's victory at the Molineux yesterday also confirmed Wolves' relegation, with Terry Connor admitting his side simply have not been good enough.
