Branislav Ivanovic urges focus after Manchester City draw


Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic says anything can still happen in the fight for the Premier League title.

The Blues failed to open an eight-point gap at the top of the table after only managing a draw at home against Manchester City but the 30-year-old believes the point should be considered as a positive result.

"It was a really tough game," Ivanovic told the club's official website.

"We felt it a little bit from the Liverpool game, playing two hours in a semi-final. Man City are a top side with top players and maybe at the moment with our squad and with our game in midweek we can be more happy than City with the draw.

"We deserved it. We had a lot of things to do, we deserved to score in the first half and in the second half we showed real discipline.

"The result doesn't change anything in the future for us if we want to achieve our aim of winning the league.

"We still have a long way to go, 15 games is a long way [so] we have to stay focused.

"It's very difficult to judge at the moment but we are the leaders and we know our way and how we play. Our style is to fight and to give everything every game."
