Manchester City have what it takes to overhaul Chelsea and retain their Premier League title, according to Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew.

The champions will find them­selves nine points behind Chelsea if the leaders overcome Stoke City on Saturday, with Manuel Pellegrini’s men not in action until Monday’s trip to Selhurst Park.

But Pardew reckons the battle for the trophy is still very much on, par­ticularly in light of the fact that City’s two top-flight triumphs were only se­cured on the final day.

He said: “Man City have fantastic players. They aren’t in decline, they will continue to grow as they have in­credible finance.

“The title race is never over, when they won it, it went to the last sec­onds but they won’t take a victory at Selhurst Park for granted.

“Man City have used their money well, the facilities and the players in their team is a reflection of that.”
