Man City boss Pellegrini refuses to concede Premier League title to Liverpool

Manuel Pellegrini is determined not to give up on Man City’s pursuit of the Premier League title in his first season in charge of the Citizens, reports Sky Sports.

Title rivals Liverpool conquered the Blues 3-2 in what was being billed as a true title six-pointer at the weekend, but the Chilean boss has insisted that the title race is not over until anything becomes official.

“I think the team knows perfectly what they have to do. We lost that game but we have still to play six games more and we will fight to the end to win the title,” said the former Real Madrid coach.

City are seven points behind Liverpool, but have two games in hand – and so if they are able to win their remaining games then Liverpool will have to mirror that form in order to take the title to Anfield for the first time since 1990, in what would also be their first ever Premier League crown.

While it is officially Liverpool’s title to lose at this stage, a single slip-up could yet prove costly, and so Pellegrini believes that as long as his players can do everything they can then his side still have a great chance at regaining the title they last won in 2012.

“If we don't do it, it is because Liverpool will win their four games, but I don't think some things change after the game on Sunday. Of course, the fans believe that we can do it. And the two postponed games: if we win both we are just one point behind Liverpool.

“If you don't believe when you're just one point behind the leader, nobody can believe anything. We have had a very good season so far and we hope we finish the last six games in the same way.

“That is why I am sure the players know exactly what they have to do and we will try to start winning one of the two games postponed so both teams, Chelsea and Liverpool, must feel we are only three or four points behind them with one game also to play at the end of the season.”

City start that six-game run-in by hosting relegation-threatened Sunderland, who beat the Blues 1-0 when the two sides met at the Stadium of Light back in November.
