London: Manuel Pellegrini expects the surge of adrenaline from regaining control of the title race will carry Manchester City to the Premier League crown. (Man City Lead Charge as Title Race Nears Climax)
Pellegrini's side have the destiny of the title back in their hands after leaders Liverpool suffered an unexpected home defeat against Chelsea last Sunday.
City followed that result by cruising to a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace just hours later to move within three points of top spot.
Crucially the Eastlands outfit have a game in hand on Liverpool and a superior goal difference to the Reds (58 to 50), meaning City are almost certain to be crowned champions for the second time in three years if they win their last three matches.
