Manchester City midfielder Javi Garcia has clearly been necking the same happy pills as his manager.
The former Benfica ace agrees with Roberto Mancini that the English Premier League title race is still on.
Garcia says that with 30 points still to play for, City can close the 12 point gap Manchester United have crafted at the top of the table.
In order for the defending champions to do so they will have to go on a major unbeaten run, the same way they did towards the end of last season, when they made good on an eight-point deficit to snatch the title from United on the final day.
But United will also have to suffer an unlikely implosion. And Garcia believes the strength of the Premier League means a series of defeats for the Red Devils is not impossible.
"Being 12 points in front is a good position for Manchester United to be in,” Garcia said.
"But there are still 10 games left, there are still 30 points to play for, it is still possible [to win the title].
"We need to fight until the final game. We will fight for this Premier League title. The players remember the gap that City made up last season.
"I think, if it was the same situation, in another league it would be impossible to make up the gap. But in England, everything is possible because all the teams are stronger. United can lose a few games. It is possible."
Garcia says he and his team-mates are looking forward to the Manchester derby, which takes place at Old Trafford soon.
If they can win there, Garcia says, City will have United nervously looking over their shoulders.
"A win there would cut the gap by three points. But first we have difficult games to play against teams like Everton and Tottenham,” he said.
"It is important we win at United, but if we don't win against Everton, for example, maybe the gap will be too big."
