Roberto Mancini claims that he feels no pressure in the Premier League title race.

Roberto Mancini has rubbished the suggestion that he is starting to feel the pressure in the Premier League title race.

The Italian, whose side were eliminated from both domestic cup competitions last month, has watched his team's league lead slip to goal difference with Manchester United close behind.

However, having managed European giants Internazionale, Mancini insists that there's nothing he can't handle.

"There isn't anywhere else like Inter Milan where you can be really under pressure," he said. "After managing Inter, you can manage any team because Inter have a big history.

"We have played 23 games so far and we have never deserved to lose a game. It's not easy to stay on top for five months and until now we have scored 60 goals. We also have the best defence in the Premier League.

"We don't have any reason to feel pressure because we never thought we could win the title in January or February. The Premier League we can maybe win at the end of April after the derby, not now."

Mancini took over at the Etihad Stadium from former boss Mark Hughes in the middle of the 2009-10 season.
