Javi Garcia: Refusing to give up hope of successful title defence

Champions City go into the Premier League's final 10 games with a 12-point gap to make up on rivals and neighbours Manchester United.

But, according to manager Roberto Mancini and several of his senior men, last season's achievement of overturning an eight-point deficit in just six matches has changed the club's mentality.

And despite the fact he only joined last summer, Garcia said: "We are Manchester City, we need to fight for this Premier League title. The players remember the gap that City made up last season.

"I think, if it was the same situation, in another league it would be impossible to make up the gap but, in England, everything is possible because all the teams are stronger.

"United can lose a few games. It is possible. We still have to go to Old Trafford and obviously a win there would cut the gap by three points.

"But firstly we have strong games to play against teams like Everton and Tottenham. It is important we win at United but if we don't win, for example against Everton, maybe the gap will be too big."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
