Mancini resolute on title tilt

roberto-manciniManchester City boss Roberto Mancini refused to write off his side's title chances after a 2-2 draw with Liverpool left them nine points adrift of Manchester United.

 

The Citizens have been held to draws in each of their last two games and with United seeing off Southampton and Fulham, the Red Devils are away and clear at the top of the table.
This championship is not over, absolutely not.Roberto Mancini
United are now 1.083 to win the Premier League this season, with the Citizens 8.50.
However, a defiant Mancini said after a thriller against the Reds at the Etihad Stadium: "This championship is not over, absolutely not. There is still time for a team to make a mistake.
"We probably now need to win all of our 13 games, but if not 11 or 12.
"This is football and it can happen. Last year we recovered eight points in the last six games. It is not finished.
"We have 13 games left and Manchester United have to play in the league, FA Cup and Champions League. The season is long, we have three months to go and we are confident.
"For us it is important to play the derby (on 6th April) two or three points behind and we have time to recover these points."
City are back in action next Saturday when they travel to Southampton and they are 23.00 to repeat their 3-2 home win over the Saints earlier this season.
