With Liverpool currently clear at the top of the table and Manchester City needing them to drop points in order to be able to win the league themselves, defender Pablo Zabaleta has warned Liverpool – ‘nothing is over.’
Both sides face tricky games this weekend. Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Stamford Bridge while City will be playing a high-flying and resolute Crystal Palace who are undoubtedly one of the form teams in the league at present.
With just three games left for Liverpool and four for City, the race looks set to go right down to the wire.
Zabaleta told reporters
“We still have four games to go until the end,” he said. “It’s going to be tough, but we need to keep believing. We know in football that anything can happen.
“We have put pressure on Liverpool. We now need to wait for Liverpool to drop some points, which they can do in some games.
“We must move on to the next game and get three points at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
“Nothing is over. In football, you know anything can happen. The most important thing is to keep working hard, keep doing everything possible until the end and then we will see.”
Manchester City are still waiting to hear news on David Silva who was stretchered off on Monday night against West Brom. The forward has been playing with a persistent ankle problem for a number of weeks after receiving kick and City are awaiting tests which will determine if the playmaker is able to take part in the final run of games for the club.
Sergio Aguero, who was also substituted off on Monday night and who appeared to be limping, is said to be fine.by
