Italian has faith after home win over Chelsea.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini says that his side can still retain their Premier League title this season following Sunday afternoon’s crucial 2-0 home win over Chelsea.
That victory cut the gap at the top of the table to city-rivals Manchester United to 12 points with 11 matches of the season left to play and after the game the Italian claimed that his team can still catch the Red Devils.
“I think for us now it is not important to look at the table,” Mancini said in the Daily Mail.
“Only to continue to work like today, to play well, to improve and to look at the table in one month, 40 days.
“In football, it is finished when it is finished, the last minute of the last game.
“If we arrive at four games to go with United 12 points ahead, it is finished but I think our job is to continue to work.
“I say to him everything when he did a fault.
“I think we can’t concede a penalty like this with a kick (long ball) from 45 metres – he and Kolo (Toure) both did a mistake.
“But after, it was fantastic. I think it was important. Maybe the game could have changed, but also if they scored, we would have had another 40 minutes.
“We were playing really well and we could have a chance to score other goals.”
