Manchester United midfielder Nani is refusing to give up on his title dream after taking the race to the final day of the season.
The Portugal international's 28th-minute strike handed United a 1-0 victory at Sunderland yesterday and kept them a point behind Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Sir Alex Ferguson's men entertain Stoke at Old Trafford next Sunday knowing victory will not be enough if the Blues beat Wigan at Stamford Bridge, but no-one within the Red Devils camp is throwing in the towel.
"We are still a team, we are together and we will fight until the last chance," said Nani.
"We still have a chance. You never know what is going to happen in football. Sometimes in life, it is very difficult, but we have to win our game."
Goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar too knows only a shock result for Wigan will send the trophy to Old Trafford, but is confident United will do their job and then keep their fingers crossed.
He said: "We need a big favour from Wigan. It would have been nice if we had been a point ahead.
"We are not in charge - that is difficult - but we have to see what we can do this week on the training ground.
"Hopefully everyone will have recovered from this match and we have a nice game for our supporters on Sunday.
"We are still hanging in there."
