Man City defender Mangala insists Man Utd, Arsenal still in title race

Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala insists the title race is wide open.

Mangala refuses to rule Manchester United and Arsenal out of the title battle.

"I don't think it's just down to two teams," said the City defender, referring also to Chelsea. "I think a lot of teams can be involved.

"Just a few games ago, we were eight or nine points behind Chelsea and we have come right back to be on their heels.

"They are not making a huge amount of noise about it, but certainly United are there in terms of league position and points. They have been winning and are gradually coming back into things.

"And who is to say that Arsenal can't put a run together and get back in the race for the title as well?

"We have to focus on getting our own results, and performing well ourselves in order to put pressure on the other teams.

"As we come into the busy Christmas period of games on Boxing Day and all over the festive period, with lots of games one after another, things can turn around really quickly.

"It's all about concentrating on ourselves at the moment, as the season progresses, and winning our own games."
