Mancini believes 33 points from the club's remaining 12 games will end City's 44-year wait for the title.
And if they do that they will be breaking all sorts of records along the way.
They are consecutive victories away from a new Premier League record of 20 consecutive home victories. And victory today against Bolton Wanderers will set a new club record of 14 home wins in a Premier League season.
Chelsea's record of 29 wins in a season, set by the Londoners in 2004-05 and equalled in 2005-06, will fall as City already have 20 victories from 26 games.
