Pellegrini not giving up on title

Manuel Pellegrini believes Manchester City can win the Premier League but admits they will have to improve if they are to catch their title rivals.

After three successive defeats in the league, City are ten points behind leaders Leicester but they have a game in hand on the three teams above them in the table.

Pellegrini found himself in a similar situation during his first season in England and he is hoping history will repeat itself and has backed his players not to give up until the title is beyond them.

"Remember the first season I was here, we needed to win the three games in hand and we won the three games. Everyone said we were out of it but we won the games and won the title," Pellegrini reflected.

"This group of players will never give up while we have the option to do it. We have one game in hand but it’s more important not to think about that but just to improve our Premier League performance.

"We are not going to give up – it’s a lot of points to the leaders. You never know when you are going to lose points. We must continue as far as we can and add the most amount of points we can, then we can see where we end up. We try to win every time we play – we just had a bad moment but we have another 33 points to try and arrange it."
