City full-back refuses to concede title race is over.
Manchester City’s Gael Clichy believes his side are still capable of retaining their Premier League title according to Sky Sports.
The left-back is refusing to give up hope despite seeing his side lose ground to city rivals Manchester United.
City are currently twelve points behind leader United, with both sides still have ten games left to play.
United have not lost a game in the Premier League since losing 1-0 to Norwich City in November but Clichy believes City still have a chance of leap-frogging United and winning the League for a second consecutive season.
Clichy points to the table this time last season which saw City trailing the Old Trafford side before they went on to secure the Premier League trophy with a last minute victory in the final game against QPR.
The former Arsenal defender believes the next four games are crucial if history is going to repeat itself.
City face Everton and Newcastle before travelling to Old Trafford to play Manchester United in what is likely to be a season-defining game.
‘What we want to do is keep taking three points every week and really keep the pressure on United’, said Clichy.
‘The next three or four games are crucial for us and if we do well during this period, we will see.
‘It will be difficult, but knowing what happened last season we can’t think it is finished as we know we have the quality to do it.
‘All we need is a bit of luck, which comes with hard work.’
