Man City’s Pellegrini: ‘We don’t have six points; we have two games’

Manuel Pellegrini is taking a cautious approach into Manchester City’s season run-in.

Manuel Pellegrini is taking a cautious approach into Manchester City’s season run-in.

The Citizens find themselves four points in arrears of Premier League leaders Liverpool and two behind second-placed Chelsea but have two games in hand on their nearest title rivals.

Despite having that advantage, Pellegrini is making sure his squad takes it a game at a time as they look to bridge the gap in their extra fixtures as they continue their hunt for a second championship in three years.

"My way of thinking is that the four teams have the same option to win the title," the City boss said.

"It is very close, all the other teams have a few points more, six games more, we have eight games more, we have to win those six points (in hand).

"We don't have six points more, we have two games postponed, it is not the same thing so I think all four teams have the same chances."

City, who drew 1-1 with Arsenal on the weekend, host Southampton on Saturday before travelling to Anfield the following weekend for a crunch clash with Liverpool.
