London: Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is confident that his players will not let the Premier League title slip away on Sunday.
Manchester City, who host relegation-threatened QPR, know they will be champions if they match or better United’s result at Sunderland.
After trailing by eight points a month ago, they have one hand on the trophy, The Sun reports.
Mancini said: “I trust my players 100 per cent. They know they have everything in their hands. They have worked hard and fought in every game all season.
“Now they have this big chance. In the last two games against Manchester United and Newcastle they have been strong and had a good mentality and I think it will be the same again on Sunday.”
City was last crowned kings of England in 1968 and Mancini knows what this moment means to them.
“I understand. We haven’t won the title for 44 years and we are in a city where our cousins win every year. That is very difficult for our supporters. I hope I can change this. They are very happy. They want us to win one more game,” he said.
“It’s a big game for City because it’s the first time in a long time. We would like to win this championship for our supporters,” Mancini added.
