Joe Hart admits that the nine-point gap to Manchester United is too big for Manchester City’s liking – but is convinced that the Citizens are still in the title race.

Roberto Mancini’s men saw the gap to the Premier League leaders open up to nine points with 13 games left to play following their 2-2 draw with Liverpool and Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Fulham.

Hart concedes that the deficit is a serious concern for the defending champions but is refusing to write off his side’s chances of retaining the title.

“Unfortunately it’s a big gap and it’s getting too big for our liking but we’ve got to move forward,” Hart told talkSPORT.

“We’ve put ourselves in a worse position than we would like to be but we know we’ll always be there [in the title race].”

Manchester City travel to Southampton for their next Premier League fixture on Saturday.
