Martin Demichelis has said that no-one left Anfield yesterday feeling they were champions and the Manchester City defender has said that Liverpool can still make mistakes in their remaining four games, as City are now relying on Liverpool to slip up if they are to take the Premier League title.
Demichelis is quoted in the Manchester Evening News, saying: “We’re obviously not happy about the result but we know we have matches ahead and you have seen in football that we can still win – they can still make mistakes.
“Hopefully we will win the rest and expect some mistakes from Liverpool. No-one left the stadium feeling they were champions, and we have plenty of matches.”
The Argentine defender has said the side will fight to the end as they look to bounce back from their 3-2 defeat at Anfield, which has handed the initiative to Liverpool in the title race.
City don’t have long to wait to put the weekend’s defeat behind them as they entertain Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening as they look to bridge a seven point gap to the top, having played two games less.
One would think that City should be capable of winning all of their home fixtures as they are against sides that are in the bottom half of the table – whilst out of their away fixtures, a trip to Everton sticks out as being extremely difficult.
Liverpool and Chelsea meet each other at Anfield in two weeks’ time and City will look to take advantage that weekend when they travel to Crystal Palace.
If City were to win both games in hand they would close the gap to Liverpool to just a point. Liverpool’s remaining fixtures features trips to Norwich City and Crystal Palace with Chelsea and Newcastle United still to head to Anfield.
Aside from their trip to Anfield, Chelsea’s fixtures are against relegation threatened sides in the form of Sunderland, Norwich City and Cardiff City.
It’s still all to play for.
