Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has said that Saturday evening’s game against Arsenal is not the title decider that some have called it.
Although City will move 6 points ahead of rivals Arsenal should they win, Pellegrini insists much can happen between now and the end of the season.
“It is not the last match and not the match that will decide the title.
“Of course it is a big game – it is against a team that is also fighting for the title – but it is a matter of six points, which would be a very important difference.
“If we win on Saturday and win our two games in hand then we can be 12 points on top of Arsenal – that is also a very important difference. A win would be a huge step to continue the way we have been going so far.”
Pellegrini has already delivered 1 trophy this season and he insists he is not under any pressure to deliver the league title
“We never talked with the owners that we must win this title. They do not ask about this title, they ask about the way the team is playing, and that way I hope we can win titles. “
One thing is certain, if Manchester City do inflict another defeat on Arsenal, not only will it knock them out of the title race, it could very well spell the end for Arsene Wenger as manager.
The pressure is on him after another fruitless season for the Gunners.
