Can Manchester City still win the Premier League title? Pablo Zabaleta thinks it's possible

16 games to go, 13 points behind the leaders. The Premier League title is a distant dream for Manchester City. Chelsea are running away with the league and don't look like losing anymore, so the target for the Citizens should be a Champions League place. Finishing in the Top Four is tough as it is, worrying about the title seems crazy.

Not to Pablo Zabaleta, who understands Chelsea is a really good team but will not give up on the league trophy just yet:

"We have to be honest and realistic that Chelsea at the moment have been the best team in the league.

"It's going to be tough but at the same time from my experience, from before, the year we won the league, we were eight points behind Manchester United in February and we kept winning games. We won the league on the last game of the season. We have to believe, keep working and try to improve as a team and see what happens at the end of it."

When Sergio Agüero scored THAT goal against QPR, we did have to cut a big lead from United and we won the title in the most memorable fashion EVER. Who knows what might happen this time?

Still, it looks really difficult to catch Chelsea. REALLY difficult.
