Silva still hopeful of title
David Silva believes Manchester City still have every chance of mounting a title challenge this season - especially if they can carve out a win at Chelsea on Sunday.
City have stuttered in the league in recent weeks and find themselves seven points behind leaders Manchester United. But with the distraction of the Europa League gone following Thursday's exit to Dynamo Kiev, Silva thinks the gap is not insurmountable.
Silva told The Sun: "If we win at Stamford Bridge and United have a few more problems in the closing weeks, there is still a chance of us winning the league.
"Chelsea are also obliged to win, so the situation increases the pressure. I think the team with the better attack will win. We need to hold our nerve and not change our attacking philosophy."
