Roberto Mancini is utterly convinced Manchester City will overturn Manchester United’s four-point advantage and win the Premier League title.

City, who have played a game less than their fierce rivals, host Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night as they look to close the gap on Sir Alex Ferguson’s men back to one point.

But the Italian manager is fully convinced his side will catch United and claim their first league crown since 1968.

“We will win the title, we will win,” Mancini declared on Tuesday. “We will do everything to win the title. We need to think positive, always.

“Until now we have had a fantastic Premier League, we need to continue like this.

“It is better to stay on the top – always – but I said a month ago it could be that we will go into the second position. This can happen.

“We had difficult fixtures, different from United, but it has not changed. We have everything in our hands. There is one game difference – potentially we are one point behind.”

Mancini has warned his side they cannot afford to be distracted by United’s fortunes and must only focus on their own games.

“Maybe if we win the next two games we go two points up,” he continued. “We need to go our way, we can’t think about United.

“We know United are used to staying there, always, but this is the only difference between us and United in this moment.”
