Roberto Mancini will not concede defeat in the Premier League title race despite The Blues lying eight points behind the rags with six games to go...
The Blues have played some sensational football this season and scored a hell of a lot of goals but 2012 has seen a combination of adverse elements serve to stifle the team's momentum. This has been much to the frustration of everyone across Planet Blue, let alone Mancio, but ahead of tonight's big game against West Brom, the man who can't stand losing won't have any defeatist talk:
'I will never say we cannot win the league if there is still a chance. That is not my life, never. Also last year, if you remember, six games to the end Chelsea were six or seven points behind. But they went to Manchester three games to the end three points behind. We are professional, we need to finish well and we need to win the games we have left.'
'It's not over. In football it is never finished. For this reason, I believe always. But we did a fantastic season and we need to finish well. Now it is clearly difficult for us to win the title. But we hope united can lose three or four points before the derby and after that we'll see. I repeat, six games to the end. 18 points. Never say never.'
Having been knacked by Arsenal's Alex Song, Yaya Touré is on crutches and extremely doubtful. David Silva, still dogged by ankle trouble has trained and in contention to start alongside the fully fit Carlos Tévez. Mario Balotelli is suspended.
