Man City keeps in sight of EPL frontrunners

MANCHESTER City showed it wouldn't be giving up its English Premier League title without a fight, downing Southampton 3-0 to jump to second on the table, six points behind the unbeaten Chelsea.

Second-half goals to Yaya Toure (pictured), Frank Lampard and Gael Clichy sunk the Saints who slipped to third and could fall further with a tough away match against Arsenal on Thursday morning, followed by a trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United next Tuesday.

City manager Manuel Pellegrini acknowledged Chelsea was playing very well, but said his players had the "ambition to continue winning".

"We have to play 25 games more. It is a lot of points and nobody knows what will happen in the future," he said.

Three more points could come the team's way when it travels to Sunderland on Thursday. Six games will be played tomorrow morning to kick off round 14.
