Man City boss still confident on title chances despite Norwich stalemate

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is still aiming for the Premier League title despite only managing to draw against Norwich City, Talksport reports.

The result means that his side remain fourth on the league table, but are still nine points away from leaders Leicester City with nine games left to be played.

City have somehow struggled over the course of the campaign as they have not won two consecutive league games since October.

However, Pellegrini has admitted that if it is still mathematically possible to overtake Leicester to the title, then he will not give up under any circumstances.

“Every time you drop points it can be more difficult, but that will not change my mind,” he said.

“If you mathematically have a chance to do it, you must always think you can do it. If you ask me before the first game of the season what we must do, we must try to win all the games and we continue with the same mentality.

“And at the end of the season we’ll see how many points we can have and in which position we’ll be.”

His squad will host Manchester United in the derby next weekend as both teams desperately need to pick up all three points as they continue their fight forĀ a top four finish.

With City still sitting in fourth, United are only behind by four points in sixth, but face competition from West Ham United who have made their way into fifth.
