Manchester City midfielder Mahrez claims that Arsenal and Chelsea are still in the title race

Manchester City beat 2-1 Watford in last night’s midweek Premier League game.

Citizens’ midfielder Riyad Mahrez says that Chelsea and Arsenal are still in the title race, despite Guardiola’s side has 41 points while Chelsea and Arsenal have 31 and 30 points each.

“Of course, everyone in the top four can win the league.,” said Mahrez. “You are not going to win every game 4-0 or 5-0. Going through these types of games makes you stronger.

“We played very well up until the second goal. After that we created more chances and tried to kill the game but in football when you are 2-0 up and the opposition score, the crowd get behind them and it’s difficult.

“We are very happy to win and get the three points. Now we need to focus every three days. We need to be ready and at our top. Anyone in the top four can still win the league.

“Nothing is done and we need to keep working very hard for each other and the team and trying to win every game.”

Chelsea visit Wolves, while fourth-placed Arsenal will face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
