Manchester City's Samir Nasri calls Chelsea 'not special at all'

Thursday February 12th, 2015

Chelsea sits seven points ahead of Manchester City in the Premier League but City midfielder Samir Nasri is not concerned about his team's position.

"For me they are not special at all, and I think they are going to make some mistakes," Nasri said of Chelsea, according to The Guardian. "We just have to perform, to win our games, and see what’s going to happen. This title will be like this until the end of the season. No one will win the league 10 games before the end of the season."

Both teams have 13 games in the league left to play this season but will not play each other again. Both games between the two teams this season ended in 1-1 draws.

Chelsea has only lost two league games this season, making it difficult for teams to make up ground in the standings.

Nasri added that he believes Man City will win the league if it wins each of its remaining games.

“If we reach 90 points we will be champions of England," he said. "If we win all of our games, it will put pressure on Chelsea."

After Wednesday's win over Stoke City, winning all 13 remaining games would tie the Premier League record for most consecutive wins. It would also give City 28 wins on the season, one shy of the record set by Chelsea in the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons.
