Petr Cech believes that Manchester City are the team under pressure in the Premier League title race.

The Citizens are currently fourth in the Premier League table but can move back to the top if they win their three games in hand over the Blues.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has relentlessly claimed that City are the favourites to win the league, despite his side being four points clear at the top of the table.

Now City have to win their games in hand if they want to stay in touch with us

And Cech also feels that the title-race pressure is on the Citizens heading into the closing stages of the season.

“Now City have to win their games in hand if they want to stay in touch with us,” said Cech. “Let’s see what they can do.

“I don’t want to talk too much about the other teams, because we are in a position where we have to concentrate on ourselves.

“Keep winning and we will have a chance. A lot of people tend to watch the table too much.”
