Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has vowed that his side will continue to fight for the Premier League title, despite losing 3-2 to Liverpool at the weekend.

Two goals from Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel put Liverpool 2-0 up at half time, but the momentum switched to the Citizens in the second half after a strike from David Silva and a Glen Johnson own goal levelled the match to 2-2. But an unchareteristic blunder from City captain Vincent Kompany saw his mishit clearance fall in to the path of Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho, who smashed in a third for Liverpool as they held on to win 3-2.

The result means table-toppers Liverpool move seven points clear of Manchester City in 3rd place, though the Citizens do have two games in hand. With four games still to play, Pellegrini insisted his side could still overhaul the reds to win the Premier League title.
