Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta has said that he believe his side can handle the pressure on his team as they prepare for a close finish for the Premier League title, Sky Sports reports.

League leaders Liverpool were stunned 2-0 by Chelsea on Sunday in a result which once again blew the title race wide open and allowed City back into the fray.


The Sky Blues now trail the top by three points and are just a point behind second placed Chelsea with a game in hand on both sides, meaning winning all their games could result in the title.


"We know that we've been in this situation two years ago and I think we had been talking about that last week," said Zabaleta.


"The most important thing we've learned from that experience was the team spirit to keep fighting until the end.


"Whoever ends as the champions, it is because they will deserve it, and we are one of those teams who will fight for it."


City last won the title on the last day of the 2011/12 season when they famously won it on goal difference ahead of Manchester United.


Manuel Pellegrini’s side are now in a position where they can again take the title on goal difference if they secure the maximum number of points available to them, meaning the title race could go to the wire.


"We have three games still to play, everything is in our hands again. We know that we must win those games if we want to win the title again,” added the Argentinean.


"But it's going to be very difficult, the next game is Everton away and that's always been very tough for us.


"They are playing for the fourth place, so nothing is going to be easy."
