Despite 2-2 draw vs Liverpool, Mancini convinced title race is not over

Manchester City 2-2 Liverpool

After a 2-2 draw at Arsenal, Liverpool brings home another great point from the Champions’ house.

Post game quotes:

Roberto Mancini (Man City): 

When asked in the after-match Press conference if the draw with Liverpool meant the race was as good as over, Mancini said: “Not at all. We may need to win most of our remaining games to have a chance but it is not impossible.

“There is still a long way to go and there is the Champions League and FA Cup to take into account plus 13 games to go so a lot can happen during that time – we are still confident we can close the gap on United and our target is to go into the Manchester derby in April just two or three points behind.

“I think the draw was the right result because Liverpool played very well, especially in the first half.  We didn’t play well today but one or two decisions didn’t go our way.  There was a tackle by Daniel Agger made that Vincent Kompany would have been sent off for but that’s how it goes sometimes.”

Brendan Rodgers (Liverpool):

“It was an outstanding performance and we absolutely brilliant today – not many teams get anything from here and even fewer score more than one goal so I’m delighted.

“I feel we should have won the game but this performance typifies our season where we have been excellent at times.”
