Aleksandar Kolarov: Man City full-back expects tense title battle

City currently trail Chelsea by six points, but the Capital One Cup winners do have two games in hand and boast a superior goal difference.

That gap, though, could be stretched to nine points this weekend as Chelsea are at home to Tottenham Hotspur while City meet Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Kolarov is expecting a tense battle to the finish and he believes that the team which handles the pressure best will emerge as champions.

"It will be very difficult to the very end because now we have played two games less than Chelsea and we need to win them," said Kolarov. "It's very important we do that because we want to keep things in our own hands.

"We have 12 more games to play and every single one of them is going to be tough. This is the important stage of the season and we have to hold our nerve.

"It is the team that handles the pressure better that will win.

"It's massive for us, we might need to beat every single team we play between now and the end of the season to win the Premier League."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
