Man City manager Roberto Mancini believes if his side are top of the EPL this time next month they stand a good chance of winning the title.
Last night's 3-0 win over Liverpool re-established a three-point gap over neighbours Man United. "January is a very crucial month for us because if we can stay on the top after January, we have a big chance to win (the league).
United are a strong team but we should think only of trying to win every game. Tottenham are also very close but I hope we stay there (on top) for a long time," he added.
