Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini believes that if his side beat Arsenal in their Premier League clash on Saturday, the Gunner’s title run will be over.
Arsene Wenger’s men looked likely to put an end to their trophy drought but following their 6-0 thrashing at the hands of London neighbour’s Chelsea, their title challenge seems to be dwindling.
Pellegrini’s side have two games in hand over the Gunner’s and a win will put them 12 points above the Londoners which the Chilean believes will be too big of a gap.
"I think that if we win on Saturday we can be 12 points on top of Arsenal if we win the two games that we have in hand," he told reporters.
"It is an important difference. Six points is also an important difference.”
"It is a match of six points but it is not the last match and not the match that will decide the title.”
"It is a huge step to continue in the way we are doing so far. Yes, of course it is a big game because it is against a team that is fighting for the title also."
