Touré still hopeful on title

Yaya Touré is still hoping that Manchester United will drop points and let Manchester City back into the title race.

City are currently 15 points behind United as they look to defend their title, and play Chelsea in their game in hand today.

"Because we [only] have 12 games to go. It will be difficult but we don't want to let anyone down because we were champions last year. We have a chance because football is like that. United may have a bad spell but we can't count on it and we have to win as many games as possible," Touré told the Guardian.
