Monaco midfielder Bernardo Silva has said that PSG remain favourites to lift the Ligue 1 title despite them trailing the league leaders by three points.

Leonardo Jardim’s team are looking for their first Ligue 1 title for 17 years and lead the current champions by three points with nine games left to play.

But Silva feels his side have a long way to go before they can think about winning the title.

"Which team do I fear most out of PSG and Nice? I believe PSG remain title favourites even if we are three points ahead of them," the Portugal international told beIN SPORTS.

"PSG are the favourites because there are still nine games to go, which is a lot.

"But we are going to do everything within our powers to hold them off. They also have some tough matches coming up. We will try not to lose any games.

"Paris are the favourites, though."

A tough task to go unbeaten for the remainder of the season, but Monaco have lost just three times this season.

If they were to repeat the form of their last nine games, they would be dropping just four points and probably lifting the Ligue 1 title come the end of the season.
