Manchester City ace Kevin De Bruyne says victory over Chelsea will blow the title race wide open.
De Bruyne, who left Stamford Bridge for Wolfsburg before his £54million move to City in 2015, thinks his former club can still be caught if they fail to stave off mounting pressure from the chasing pack.
“They’re still a lot of points ahead but obviously they will try to win the game against us because if they lose and Tottenham win then maybe they have a little bit of pressure that they haven’t had throughout the whole season until now,” De Bruyne said.
“In the end you don’t want the pressure that you’ve not had all season. I don’t think they will be shaken [by the Palace result]. They are professional and know how to cope with a loss.
“But even if it’s very difficult [to catch Chelsea] it’s still possible mathematically. As long as nothing is given away it’s still possible. We just have to try to win our games and in the end we will see what happens.
“It doesn’t mean we’re going to get the title but if Chelsea make a mistake and we can do something afterwards we will see.”
