​Zabaleta: Man City intent on battling for Premier League title

Pablo Zabaleta has warned runaway leaders Chelsea that Manchester City have the personnel and personality to capitalise on any slip-up.

"It was massive," the right-back said after City won a Premier League match they were trailing in at the break for the first time since November 2012, following the 2-1 home win over Arsenal.

"We had been talking before the game that it was a huge game for both teams because we are two teams that are looking to try to catch Chelsea, trying to reduce that gap to them.

"We know they are on a run of games and a real solid team at the moment, but of course we are not going to give up.

"We have confidence, we have belief. There's a long way to go until the end of the season.

"We showed in the last two games that playing that way we are one of those teams that can fight for the title for sure."
