Sergio Aguero must be hoping Chelsea fall off the cliff, as the Argentine international is still convinced Manchester City can retain the Premier League title this season.
The current champions are fourth in the table, a point behind Louis van Gaal's side and nine points behind league leaders Chelsea - who have a game in hand.
Manuel Pellegrini's men have a chance to get back to winning ways on Sunday as they face Manchester United at Old Trafford, and Aguero is full of belief heading into Sunday's derby.
"Of course we can still win it," Aguero told Sky Sports News HQ.
"In football, anything can happen - as soon as you think something is certain, then everything changes, we have seen it so many times before and we'll see it again.
"We only focus on ourselves, try to win every game we play and keep pressure on Chelsea."
Man City have matches against West Ham United, Aston Villa, Tottenham, QPR, Swansea City and Southampton ahead.
