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?
