Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says he was never worried his side would not claim a win over Crystal Palace, despite being held at the break.

Joe Hart expects a titanic tussle for the title with Chelsea and believes Jose Mourinho and his side will not have been surprised by the way Manchester City surged back into contention.
