London: Roberto Mancini was left admitting Manchester City need to win all 10 remaining Premier League matches if they are to snatch the title away from bitter city rivals Manchester United.

The City manager, who was speaking after his side had snatched a 1-0 win over struggling Aston Villa on Monday, added United, who hold a 12 point lead over them, would also have to lose several matches if they were to retain the title they won in thrilling fashion on the final day of last season.

"It is difficult. We have 30 more points to play for and we need to try to win. We will see what happens at the end. Anything can happen in football," said Mancini.
