Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko believes his side can still win the Premier League trophy despite the defeat suffered at Liverpool last weekend.
City's 3-2 defeat at Anfield last Sunday left them trailing Liverpool by seven points and Chelsea by five; but the Manchester club are yet to play two outstanding games.
Regardless of these outstanding games, City are not too far behind Chelsea and the Reds as they would grasp just six points if they were to win the two games - hence, one point above the Blues and one below Liverpool.
And the Bosnian believes his team can lift the Barclays trophy - as more often than not it's the team that wins the most games that eventually emerges as the champions.
"It's too early to say if Sunday's result will decide where the title ends up because we still have six games to play and Liverpool and Chelsea both have four left," the Bosnian striker said, according to the Evening Standard.
"People talk about pressure and suchlike but that doesn't really matter - just who wins the most games between now and the end of the season.
"I firmly believe, like the last time we won the title, that it will go right to the wire despite our defeat at Anfield."
Remembering the League success of his side under former manager Roberto Mancini in 2012, the 28-year-old Bosnian stressed that his desire to win the silverware is strengthened by the good memories.
"We have a lot of new players and we want to win it again for our fans, the team and the club and we have to get back on track by beating Sunderland and West Brom in the next week," he added.
"I enjoyed winning the league with Wolfsburg and it was amazing to win it with City and I hope to win it many more times as a City player."
Dzeko has netted 11 league goals for City this term, but speculation remains rife over his future at the club.
