Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov has said the team are fighting their nerves as the Premier League title run-in approaches, according to ESPN.

Kolarov added that City have to win each of their final 12 games of the season if they are to regain the title.

“It will be very difficult to the very end because now we have played two games less and we need to win them,” Kolarov said.

“It's very important we do that because we want to keep things in our own hands. We have 12 more games to play and every single one of them is going to be tough. This is the important stage of the season and we have to hold our nerve.

“It is the team that handles the pressure better that will win. It's massive for us, we might need to beat every single team we play between now and the end of the season to win the Premier League.”

City are currently fourth in the table but have played two games fewer than the three teams above them, Arsenal, Liverpool and leaders Chelsea. City trail Arsenal and Liverpool by two points and are a further two back from Chelsea.

Kolarov was part of the City side that won the title in the 2011-12 season with a last-day win over Queens Park Rangers, taking trophy out of the grasp of Manchester United and topping the table from United by a margin of eight goals.
