Manuel Pellegrini has refused to write off Manchester City’s chances of retaining their Premier League title.

The Citizens are eight points behind runaway leaders Chelsea after Pellegrini’s men failed to win five of their opening 11 Premier League games this season.

Jose Mourinho’s side have been likened to Arsene Wenger’s ‘Invincibles’ side of 2003/04 after a run of nine victories and two draws in the English top-flight.

But Pellegrini, who was appointed as Roberto Mancini’s successor in 2013, is still optimistic City can overturn the points deficit in the remaining 27 games of the season.

“Now is not the moment to analyse what has happened in the season. There are a lot of games to play in the Premier League and Champions League,” Pellegrini told Sky Sports News HQ.

“We have 27 more games to play and there are a lot of points (to be contested), so we will see at the end who will be the best team this year.”

Pellegrini’s side were crowned Premier League champions after City finished two points clear of Liverpool last season.

Can Man City catch Chelsea?
