Edin Dzeko insists Manchester City can’t be written off in the Premier League title race.

The Citizens are seven points behind leaders Liverpool, who have played two games more than the Eastlands outfit, after a 3-2 loss at Anfield on Sunday.

I firmly believe, like the last time we won the title, that it will go right to the wire despite our defeat at Anfield

Edin Dzeko

Dzeko was part of the City side that won the top-flight crown on the final day of the 2011/12 campaign, and the Bosnian expects the title to go down to the wire.

“It’s too early to say if Sunday’s result will decide where the title ends up because we still have six games to play and Liverpool and Chelsea both have four left,” Dzeko told City’s website.

“People talk about pressure but that doesn’t really matter – just who wins the most games between now and the end of the season.

“I firmly believe, like the last time we won the title, that it will go right to the wire despite our defeat at Anfield.”

He added: “We have a lot of new players and we want to win it again for our fans, the team and the club and we have to get back on track by beating Sunderland and West Brom in the next week.

“I enjoyed winning the league with Wolfsburg and it was amazing to win it with City. I hope to win it many more times as a City player.”
