Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko believes that the Premier League title race will be decided on the final day of the season.

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has claimed that this season's Premier League title race will go "right to the wire".

The Blues are now seven points behind leaders Liverpool but with two games in hand following Sunday's 3-2 defeat at Anfield.

Despite Liverpool's position at the top of the table, Dzeko believes that City and rivals Chelsea are still capable of lifting the trophy.

"It's too early to say if Sunday's result will decide where the title ends up because we still have six games to play and Liverpool and Chelsea both have four left," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"People talk about pressure and such like, but that doesn't really matter - just who wins the most games between now and the end of the season.

"I firmly believe, like the last time we won the title, that it will go right to the wire."

City return to Premier League action on Wednesday when they play host to Sunderland.
