Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has said that his side are not thinking about Chelsea, as they head into a hectic set of fixtures over the Christmas period.

Whilst City remain three points behind the Blues after they won 2-0 at Stoke on Monday, they have been the form team of the last month, notching up six straight wins.

The Citizens can now look forward to a much kinder set of fixtures over the next week, as they face West Brom away on Boxing Day, before subsequent home matches against Burnley and Sunderland.

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea face a much more daunting set of fixtures, taking on high-flying West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day, before away excursions to Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur.

But Pellegrini has insisted that they are not thinking about Chelsea at the moment, but are focused on continuing their winning run.
