Roberto Mancini is continuing to play down Manchester City's Barclays Premier League title hopes despite closing the gap on leaders Manchester United to three points ahead of next Monday's derby.
United were held to a 4-4 home draw by Everton while City took advantage by winning 2-0 at Wolves to doom the Black Country side to relegation. But Mancini remains adamant the title is "not in our hands" even though City have a superior goal difference.
He said: "Is it a good day? Not really. We won a difficult game. Wolves are relegated. I don't think they deserve to be there. I'm very sorry for them. They fight for every ball. For us, we didn't play well today. Only one team can win this title. It's not in our hands. We have three points less."
