He still refuses to give up the title to Manchester United.
"With City, it's not been last year that's for sure. It's been tough. We are not in the position we want to be in.
"We remain focused and hard on the case of what we need to do. We are still in one cup, a little further away than we would like to be in terms of the league.
"But we need to nail down that second spot and in doing that it will push us to really go for the title as well.
"You can't not go for it. It's a long way off but we've got an awful lot to fight for and it's a big couple of months for us."
