Stevan Jovetic: Confident in title race

Stevan Jovetic: Confident in title race

The Montenegrin striker has missed a large chunk of his debut campaign in England through injury and has been limited to just two starts.

But he is now fully fit and ready to try and help City to the title, and he is confident they will repeat their 2012 success, as he feels it is their previous experience that gives them the edge.

"This squad has a lot of experience because we won the Premier League two years ago," he said.

"We know how to play and keep the pressure down and I think Liverpool have more pressure - I think we are going to win.

"I am happy for my goal but especially for the victory because now we have seven games, seven finals, and hopefully at the end we will win the league.

"We must believe we can win all seven games, because then we can do what we want, but it is important that we are in pole position.

"The next game against Liverpool will decide a lot of things, but even if we win that game there are more hard games to come."

City travel to Anfield on Sunday, a game you can see live on Sky Sports, and Jovetic insists that they do not need all three points.

"A draw would be good but I think we are the team that always goes for the victory and I hope it will be the same at Anfield," he said.

Jovetic also insists that City have a better balance to their team than Liverpool, and is confident of success this weekend.

"It's important that a team has so many players who can score, as we saw on Saturday, with Nasri, Edin, me and Yaya all scoring," he said.

"There is always someone who is going to score for us, but we also have the defence and midfield playing well.

"I think that gives us a small advantage. It is not important who scores, but just that we score."

The former Fiorentina man is hoping to prove his worth in the last few weeks of the season.

"I have been fit for the last four games, but played in the first one against Fulham, was on the bus for the next two, and then played and scored against Southampton," he said.

"I am fit and feel good every time I play. I am ready, and know I can do very good things for this club."

f I were Manuel Pellegrini I would keep quiet and hope the Board didn't notice City not winning anything. If he isn't sacked I'd be astonished.
