BBC pundit Danny Mills rules Manchester City out of the title race

Etihad Stadium

Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City make up the title contenders.

Former defender Danny Mills believes Manchester City are out of the title race following their latest 3-0 defeat at Liverpool, the BBC report.

On a night where fellow contenders Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur both lost, City failed to make ground on league leaders Leicester City as they slumped to a disappointing defeat at Anfield.

Adam Lallana, James Milner and Roberto Firmino got the goals for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Co-commentating on BBC Radio Five Live, Mills was angered by his former side’s lack of intent and told listeners how Manuel Pellegrini’s men now have no chance of winning the title.

"Will Manchester City concentrate on the Champions League now? They are not going to get close to winning the league,” the former England international defender explained.

City’s defeat was their third in succession in the Premier League, leaving them four points adrift of Arsenal and a whopping ten behind Leicester have played one game less.

Aside from a trip to Chelsea, City’s run-in doesn’t look too daunting therefore they still can have a say in the title race, though they’re now in a position where they must rely on favours from elsewhere.

The Citizens face Aston Villa and Norwich City in their next two games before taking on Champions League opponents Dynamo Kiev and later neighbours Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.
