Petr Cech has rubbished talk it’s a two horse race between Manchester rivals United and City for the title.
Cech said: “People are saying it’s a two-horse race but that’s not the opinion here. Maybe they have a two-horse race for the title of best team in Manchester! But in the league we are still in there and we are confident we have a very good squad and the experience to make their lives difficult.
“There are 34 games to play. We go to United in a positive mood. We are in a good position. If we win at Old Trafford we will have closed the gap and we can stay top after that.” Cech admits he will spend long hours studying Wayne Rooney’s goals.
He added: “Every time I play I watch videos of opposition goals. I’ve been doing it all my career and the only difference this time is the video will be a bit longer than normal!
“You can see there are similarities in the movement when he scores. The main target is to see everybody’s movement – so you know when the cross is coming where people should be.
It gives you an extra second and you can deal with it. That’s the reason I study it.”
