Adam Johnson has admitted he would be devastated if Manchester City failed to win the Premier League title this season.

City have been on top ever since they romped to that amazing 6-1 win over Manchester United in October and have since opened up a three-point advantage over their neighbours and currently sit five ahead of Tottenham, who visit the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

And, while manager Roberto Mancini keeps stressing he will not know exactly how his team are placed until Yaya Toure returns from African Nations Cup duty in the middle of next month, Johnson concedes from this position, failure does not bear thinking about, and said: "I would be devastated if we didn't win it."
