Mancini rules out late City title push

Published Add your comment

Roberto Mancini repeated his claim that the title race is "finished" despite seeing his Manchester City team cut Manchester United's lead to two points with a Carlos Tevez-inspired hammering of Norwich.

Tevez, starting successive Barclays Premier League games for the first time in 11 months, scored a hat-trick and Sergio Aguero also netted a fine double as City moved within touching distance of the summit with a 6-1 win at Carrow Road.

"It is impossible. The title race is finished. It is true," said Mancini. "I think now it's too late for us. I am happy because we started to play like we did in the first half of the season today."
