Roberto Mancini insisted his Manchester City side still have what it takes to retain their Premier League crown, despite watching Manchester United open up a seven-point lead over the Citizens on Wednesday.

City slumped to a 1-0 defeat by Sunderland at the Stadium of Light as Sir Alex Ferguson’s men ran out 4-3 winners in a thrilling game at Old Trafford.

Despite seeing City fall further behind in the title race, the Italian believes his side can recover but admits they cannot afford to drop many more points.

“United score a lot of goals, but they also concede more than us,” Mancini, whose side travel to Norwich City on Saturday, told BBC Sport.

“It depends on us because the season is long and we can recover, no problem, but we need to change something in our team because we cannot continue like this.”
