Hart: Pool Game Won't Decide Title

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart believes that the Sunday’s top of the table clash between his side and league leaders Liverpool will not be the title decider.

The England international knows that with six games left to play, anything can happen and that there will be more twists as we come to the end of the season.

“I look at the games,” the England number one told The Times.

“Liverpool are going for the title, so that will be tough. Then it’s Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion, who are fighting for their lives. Crystal Palace are desperate to stay up. Everton are going for the top four. Then Aston Villa, who could still be in the relegation battle, and West Ham United is always hard. Every single one is a different challenge. There are none that are easier than the rest.”

Hart’s teammate James Milner believes that Liverpool will have to cope with the pressure of the title race if they want a first league crown in 24 years but admitted that the Merseysiders remain favourites.

“There is pressure on all the leading clubs and it’s all down to who handles it the best,” the City midfielder told The Sun.

“We’ve been here before and have won the title recently, whereas Liverpool haven’t won for a long time. As the finishing line gets closer, games that looked easier a few weeks ago prove to be anything but. It’s still in our hands because if we win seven games, we’ll be the champions, but Liverpool are in the box-seat because they are top and have the points already on the board so for me, they are favourites.”
