Champs won’t give up chase, says Kyle
KYLE Walker insists City will not give up in the Premier League title race despite defeat to United seeing them slip 14 points behind league leaders Liverpool.
The Blues have now dropped as many points in this campaign as they did in the whole of last season.
“It’s a massive gap, we know that,” said the England defender.
“We need to keep fighting until the end. It’s not over until it’s over, we will keep trying, as a team.
“We knew United have quick players in quick areas. Martial, Rashford and James, they are very good in the counter-attack. We knew that and we didn’t handle it as well as we could have.”
Angelino - who was picked ahead of Benjamin Mendy against the Reds - believes City should be proud of their display against United despite not coming out on top because of the fight they showed.
“It’s obviously not what we expected, but we are proud of the team, because we fought until the end,” the Spaniard said.
“We created more chances than them, but we didn’t score the goals. We tried and we kept trying until the last minute. We need to keep this mentality for the next games. Our focus is to win every game.
“We don’t think about the table. We need to focus on the positive and keep fighting.”
