Champs won’t give up chase, says Kyle

Manchester Evening News - - SPORT -

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.”
