Manuel Pellegrini: Man City’s loss at Liverpool ‘changed nothing’
Manuel Pellegrini insists that Manchester City's loss to Liverpool did not change "anything" in the title race
Manuel Pellegrini has insisted that Manchester City’s defeat at Liverpool on Sunday “changed nothing” in the Premier League title race.
The Citizens were beaten 3-2 at Anfield as Brendan Rodgers’ side maintained their two-point lead at the top of the table heading into the final four games of the season.
I don’t think anything changed on Sunday
However, Pellegrini, whose side host relegation-threatened Sunderland on Wednesday, believes that the result has not had a big impact on the race for the top-flight crown.
“The team knows perfectly what they have to do – we still have six more games and we will fight to the end for the title,” said Pellegrini, whose side are seven points behind Liverpool but have two games in hand.
“If we don’t do it, it’s because Liverpool have won their four games, I don’t think anything changed on Sunday.
“We must win our games, we can’t do anything about other teams. We know exactly what we have to do – we start tomorrow, hoping to win one of the postponed games.
“We’ve had a good season so far and we hope we finish in the same way.”
