Man City's Hart not ready to give up Premier League title
Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is not ready to surrender the Premier League title to Manchester United, the Guardian has reported, with the England international calling for his club colleagues to give the rest of the season a “damn good go.”
Hart saved a penalty as City beat Chelsea 2-0 on Sunday, keeping the gap between themselves in second and league leaders Manchester United at 12 points with 11 games to play. The second Manchester derby of the season, to be played at United’s Old Trafford, is to come in early April.
“It's going to be really hard, we've got a lot to do but we're going to have a damn good go at doing it,” Hart said. “It's big, but it is what it is. You can speculate and talk about the past but we have just got to look forward and try to win. The only way is up for us.”
The victory over Chelsea was City’s first in the league since the middle of January and put a seven-point gap between the sides. The London club dropped to fourth on Monday evening after Tottenham Hotspur beat West Ham and leapfrogged into third, five points behind the champions.
Hart added: “Even if there is one game to go and we are 12 points behind, we'll still believe. We've got to. We've got to keep fighting, you never know. We have just got to keep going.”
