Mancini: EPL Title Race Not Over

MOST COMMENTED

On Saturday, Sergio Aguero rescued a point for defending EPL champ Manchester City in a 2-2 tie at home to Liverpool, while Manchester United picked up three more points with a 1-0 win against Fulham at Craven Cottage, a result that left City nine points behind United at the top of the Premier League.

Despite the widening gap at the top, City coach Roberto Mancini insists that the title race is not over. "This championship is not over, absolutely not,” he said following the Liverpool tie. “There is still time for a team to make a mistake.

“We probably now need to win all of our 13 [remaining league] games, but if not 11 or 12," he added. "This is football and it can happen. Last year we recovered eight points in the last six games. It is not finished.” The Italian once again targeted the Manchester derby on April 6 as the pivotal game. "For us it is important to play the derby game only two or three points behind.”
