Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini claims he does not have a points target in mind to win the Barclays Premier League.

Mancini suggested before Christmas that he felt a team would need 90 points to secure the title, since when City have been held to a goalless draw at West Brom and seen their two-point lead at the top of the table wiped out.

City are now level with Manchester United with 45 points from 18 games, while Tottenham are seven points behind with a game in hand, and Mancini said: "It is difficult. In this moment City, United and Tottenham have a lot of points compared to other years."
