The Brazilian midfielder maintains his belief that City can claim a third Premier League crown in six seasons

Fernandinho has not given up hope of winning the Premier League as he still believes Manchester City can overhaul Chelsea.

The road looks dark for Arsenal

Chelsea are threatening to run away with the title, 10 points clear atop the table and 11 ahead of third-placed City, who are preparing to face Stoke City on Wednesday.

Antonio Conte's Chelsea are showing no signs of slowing down in their relentless pursuit of silverware but Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho maintains his belief that City can claim a third Premier League crown in six seasons.

"When you have this desire to win, to win, to win, I would not feel comfortable losing a title," Fernandinho told Sky Sports.

"We have to believe, I still believe. We all know the Premier League is so tough and many, many things can happen - right until the last game of the season.

"We have Stoke and it's always difficult to play against them. After that we have Liverpool and then Arsenal and Chelsea.

"So I think this month is going to decide if we are going to be up there new the top of the table or not."
