Manuel Pellegrini: The only way forward is to think of the Champions League game on Tuesday


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini admits it is difficult for his side to go on and win the title after Saturday's goalless draw at Norwich City.

The Citizens dominated the game, especially in the second half, but struggled to create chances in the final third.

With nine games to go, City are now nine points below leaders Leicester City.

"Of course we dropped two important points," Pellegrini said after the game.

"My mind is always focused now to the next game and while it is mathematically possible we must try to do it.

"The only way forward is to think of the Champions League game on Tuesday and after that we play against Manchester United at home.

"We will try to get the three points and at the end of the season see which side has the most points but when you have so few games to play and you are losing points it is always difficult.

"We dominated the game from the first minute to the end but we were not clear in the last third where we needed to create more space against a team that defended very well.

"Normally, we have a lot of possession and create a lot of chances in the last third but today we couldn't do it. We played with great concentration and intensity but you need a little more if you want to score goals."
