Fernandinho: Sunderland result a "complete disaster"

Fernandinho admits that the 2-2 draw with Sunderland was a huge blow to Manchester City's title chances.

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho has admitted that his side's 2-2 home draw against Sunderland on Wednesday night was a "complete disaster" for the club in the battle for the Premier League title.

The point instead of three for City means that they are now six points behind league leaders Liverpool with just one remaining game in hand, so they now require other results to go their way until the end of the season.

"It's a very disappointing result," BBC Sport quotes Fernandinho as saying. "The whole team is disappointed about the result, especially in the way we played. The result was a complete disaster for us.

"We need to keep our heads up and think about the next game, when we cannot make a silly mistake as we did."

The result was only the second time City have dropped points at home this season.
