Fernandinho insists City can beat Chelsea to EPL title
Ahead of a Wednesday night meeting with Stoke City at the Etihad, Manchester City’s Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho is adamant that Chelsea’s 11-point lead at the top of the table can be overhauled.
“When you have this desire to win, to win, to win, I would not feel comfortable losing a title,” Fernandinho told Sky Sports.
“We have to believe, I still believe. We all know the Premier League is so tough and many, many things can happen – right until the last game of the season.
The Citizens welcome Mark Hughes’ men to Manchester today, if they win they move into second on the log cutting the gap to 8-points.
“We have Stoke and it’s always difficult to play against them. After that we have Liverpool and then Arsenal and Chelsea.
“So I think this month is going to decide if we are going to be up there near the top of the table or not.”
