De Jong: Mancini not ruling out Man City in title hunt

Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong admits he doesn't believe manager Roberto Mancini has conceded the title to Chelsea.

Despite Saturday's victory, Mancini insisted Chelsea would still win the Premier League.

But De Jong suggested his boss was indulging in a bit of kidology.

He said: "He hasn't put that message across to us. Maybe it is to take the pressure off. We're surprised he said that."
