Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists the title race is not over despite his team's 2-2 home draw with Liverpool. The situation could have been worse for City in the Premier League clash at the Etihad on Sunday had Sergio Aguero not scored 12 minutes from time to rescue a point. "There are still 13 games until the end," Mancini said on Sky Sports. "I think we can recover nine points." Edin Dzeko put the hosts in front before strikes from Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard turned the game in favour of Liverpool. Mancini felt aggrieved that play had not stopped in the build-up to Sturridge's goal after Dzeko was challenged by Daniel Agger. He said: "I think Liverpool played a good game. We conceded two goals, stupid goals for me. "But before the first goal there was a big foul - if it had happened with us, probably there would have been a red card. "Instead, the referee and linesman did not see anything. In the end, though, I think it was the right result." Asked if he felt Liverpool should have put the ball out when Dzeko was left on the turf by Agger, Mancini said: "Probably, because after this foul I think there were several seconds (before the goal). "I think so, but this can happen. I think it was a foul and should have been a yellow card. The rules are the same for everyone always."
