Mancini Still Believes

Roberto Mancini has come out and stated he still believes the title race is still alive after he saw his side run out the victors in a 2-0 win over Chelsea. As his team closed the gap back to 12 points, the Italian, was still hopeful of a minor miracle.

Although City have seemingly relinquished their title, throwing away points they really should be getting, they are showing signs that we could possibly be in for a more tense ending to the season than we were perhaps expecting.

Man City have been, they would admit themselves, far from convincing this season. They have lacked the free-flowing football that they were associated with last year.

Key players such as David Silva and Yaya Toure have been good but not outstanding and it really has showed in the City performances as a whole.

Unlike last year though, they have experience of winning the title at it will really show coming into the business end of the season but they'll be going up against a side who have won the Premier League title on 12 separate occasions.

What do you make of City's chances? Will they at least make it interesting?

Gareth Bale Does It Again

Gareth Bale proved again to be instrumental as his side earned all three points at Upton Park thanks to two goals from the Welsh magician, with the winner being nothing short of extraordinary.

After taking the lead, Tottenham then had to make a comeback after going 2-1 down after an hour played. With a goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson leaving us with a tense finish, Bale stepped up to the plate again and delivered with an astonishing goal.

Gareth Bale, 23, is now one of the most sought after players in world football after showing some prolific performances recently. At such a young age, the prospects of how good he could be in a few years to come are frightening.

With many clubs inevitably interested in his availability  Spurs will do well to hang on to the Welsh international for much longer. Even if they eventually do sell off the playmaker, a hefty sum is surely on the cards.

What have you made of Gareth Bale this season? Would he be among the top 5 players in the world?
