Manchester City media round-up: Nasri and Milner refusing to give up on title

Samir Nasri

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester City.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has been quoted by the Daily Star making a claim over the Premier League title race.

The Frenchman feels his team are still in the race to retain their title, even though Chelsea have a healthy lead at the top of the table.

“The Premier League is far, far, far from over – at some point Chelsea will drop points,” he said.

Manchester City recently overturned an eight point gap with six games left in the season to win the league under Roberto Mancini.

James Milner is also confident City can do the business in the title race, with comments reported by ESPN.

The midfielder has suggested the side need to try and win their remaining games to keep the pressure up on Chelsea at the top.

“We know what is in front of us now. The remaining games, we have to win, and we are more than capable of doing that. We have done it before,” he said.

City’s next Premier League game comes away at Burnley when the league action returns after the FA Cup break this weekend.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has backed Vincent Kompany to fight his way back into the first team, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Kompany was dropped for the 2-0 win against Leicester City earlier this week after a period where he failed to produce his best form.

However, Hart doesn’t expect the Belgian to be out of the side for an extended period.

“I’m sure he will be back in the team again with that captain’s armband, being one of the best defenders in world football,” he said.
