Manchester City are sitting in third place as the season winds down, but they got two in hand and are only four points out of first place. They’re looking to get a win and three points against Southampton but they’re facing a place in eighth place.
“We are just thinking about this match we have to play against Southampton,” Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini said when asked about contract talks with midfielder Samir Nasri, via ESPN FC.
“All the other things – you are always talking and thinking and working – but in this moment it is not the most important thing.”
But they’re aware of the title race and league-leading Liverpool’s recent run of wins.
”They are playing very well. They are making (it through) the second round (of fixtures) with a lot of points,” Pellegrini said.
”They won the last eight games in a row, it is not easy what they are doing. ‘The important thing to consider is, that Liverpool are doing very well but, if we win our two matches we are two points on top of Liverpool. So, I think we are also doing very well.”
