Manchester City latest: ‘We outplayed Liverpool for over 45 minutes,’ says defender

All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from the Etihad…

With the dust now settled after Sunday’s match between Liverpool and Manchester City, Edin Dzeko feels the title-race will still go down to the wire. And when you consider that the Blues still have two games in hand there is little reason to doubt him.

In quotes published by Sky Sports, the Bosnian striker said, “It’s too early to say if Sunday’s result will decide where the title ends up because we still have six games to play and Liverpool and Chelsea both have four left.

“I firmly believe, like the last time we won the title, that it will go right to the wire.”

That certainly was leaving it late, but could it really go down to the final few kicks of the last games of the season? It certainly would not come as a surprise given how tight the race has been thus far.

In other news, Martin Demichelis believes City deserved at least a point from Sunday’s game.

In quotes published by the Mirror, the Argentine defender said, “Given that we were better than them for more than 45 minutes, maybe 2-2 would have been a fair result.

“We finished the first half playing well, but after it we needed to find the balance between defence and attack.”

However they will now be hoping the Reds slip up at least once between now and the end of the season, or Manuel Pellegrini will have to wait to get his hands on his first Premier League trophy.
