Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insisted the Barclays Premier League title race was not over after his team's 2-2 draw with Liverpool this afternoon.
The result at the Etihad Stadium leaves second-placed City nine points adrift of leaders Manchester United.
And following the contest, Mancini told Sky Sports 1: "There are still 13 games until the end.
"No, (it is not over) - I think we can recover nine points."
Edin Dzeko put the hosts in front before strikes from Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard to made it 2-1 to Liverpool.
Sergio Aguero then equalised in the 78th minute, capitalising superbly on an error by Reds goalkeeper Jose Reina.
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."
