Liverpool clash WON’T decide the title, insists Manuel Pellegrini
Manuel Pellegrini plays down the significance of Manchester City's trip to Liverpool on Sunday
Manuel Pellegrini has played down the significance of Manchester City’s trip to Liverpool, insisting that the game will not decide the destination of the Premier League trophy.
The Citizens travel to Anfield on Sunday looking for a victory to close the gap to the league leaders to a point having played two games less.
Liverpool have had a great season, so this is an important game
But although the City boss accepts that the showdown will have a bearing on the title race, the Chilean is adamant that the winners are not guaranteed to win the league
“It’s a very big game, but I do not think it will choose the title,” said Pellegrini. “Every game is a big game now until the end of the season.
“Liverpool have had a great season, so this is an important game. It’s a very big game, it’s the team who are at the top of the table.
“Of course the team that wins this game has more of a chance to win the title. But if you think that this is the finish of the Premier League, I think it is a mistake.”
