Manchester City gaffer, Manuel Pellegrini is not ruling Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea out of the premier league title race just yet despite their poor run of form.
The Blues who won the title last season with a massive eight points ahead of the Citizens after losing just three games are incredibly under pressure winning just three wins from their opening 10 league games.
However, Pellegrini believes that the current situation is not enough to write of Chelsea and has backed Mourinho to turn their fortunes around.
“All managers have a moment in their career, in their season, a bad moment,” he said. “It’s normal, but I hope, because he [Mourinho] is a very important manager, that he will arrange his team.
“I think he has already demonstrated what he can do. He’s the champion of the Premier League this year. I always say mathematics show when you can do it and when you can’t and I am sure Chelsea will be involved in the title race or for the first position.
“They will continue to be a very strong team. They are not in their best moment, but I am sure they will improve.”
Chelsea will host Liverpool this afternoon at Stamford Bridge.
