Manuel Pellegrini downbeat on title chances


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini admits his side's task to win the English Premier League has become more and more difficult after defeat at Burnley.

It is City's second consecutive defeat away from home after defeat at Anfield against Liverpool.

And with Arsenal taking all three points against West Ham United, Pellegrini's men are now just one point above the Gunners.

"It was a normal performance and I don't think we played very badly," Pellegrini is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"We created more chances, they had one shot on target and got a beautiful goal.

"We didn't create enough to score, but we were very unlucky.

"Of course we're doing something wrong as we are not winning the games we normally do. I don't want to focus on two or three players.

"We are a team, a squad of 22 players, and I'm sure they're given the most they can. It's important to continue trusting what they are doing.

"When you have a mathematical chance, you have a chance to win the title. The reality is that it's more difficult to do so now."
