Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini insists there is no title favourite

Manuel Pellegrini beleives there is no outright favourite for the Premier League title this season, but expects Manchester City to have a “final push”.

City lie nine points behind Leicester in fourth place – with a game in hand – ahead of their trip to Liverpool on Wednesday evening.

With 36 points still to play for, Pellegrini is adamant all is not lost despite the media’s title focus being trained primarily on Leicester, Tottenham and Arsenal.

Pellegrini, who takes his side to Anfield just three days after theirĀ Capital One Cup success over Jurgen Klopp’s sideĀ at Wembley, said: “It was a very long game in the final.

“Both teams will have had the same rest, but it is easier when you have won. I don’t know how Liverpool will react – it is a different competition. We will have a tough game, but we will try to win.

“For our team, the three points are important if we are to be involved in the title until the end. There are no favourites for the title with so many games still to play. Of course, it is easier for Leicester and Tottenham but we know what the Premier League is like.”
