City, who play at Arsenal in the Saturday Night Football this weekend, are currently three points behind the leaders Chelsea, and two behind Liverpool.

They have two games in hand and a superior goal difference but Kolarov insists Mourinho and Rodgers both think differently in private, to what they say in public.

"It is my opinion, but they are in first and second place at this moment. They want to know that they are there for the title and they just want to put pressure on us," he told Sky Sports News Weekend Warm-up.

"They are fighting every game for the title and maybe now they have to admit that they are there.

"We know that they are trying to put pressure on us but we are used to playing with pressure because we have had it from the first game of the season.

"We wanted to win the title, this was always out target. They are now in the positions they are in, so they are both there for the title."

You can catch the full fascinating interview with Kolarov on Sky Sports News weekend warm-up from 18.00 on Friday

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
