Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says the Premier League title race is still wide open and believes Manchester United, Tottenham and Everton are all in the hunt.

Pellegrini takes his side to White Hart Lane on Wednesday night to play a side they hammered 6-0 earlier in the season, although Spurs now have Tim Sherwood at the helm and results have picked up.

Many have suggested the title race is a three-horse affair between City, Arsenal and Chelsea, but Pellegrini does not agree and thinks Wednesday night’s opponents are still in with a chance.

United’s chances have been boosted by the capture of Juan Mata from Chelsea and Pellegrini also believes it will give David Moyes’ men a lift.

“I don’t think we are just three teams involved for the title,”
Pellegrini said.

“Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton and Manchester United continue with chances.

“In football you never know. We have 48 points more to play for and if you add 48 to 37 (United’s total), it is 85, an important amount of points.

“I think an important player can change a team in every game.

“I am not just talking about Mata and Man United, but Man United have bought a very good player.”

City are 2.06 favourites to win at the Lane, with Tottenham 3.51 for a home win, while draw is 3.34.

Pellegrini’s men remain 1.95 favourites to win the title, just ahead of Chelsea and then Arsenal, while Tottenham are 71.00 to pip them all.
