Manuel Pellegrini has insisted it is too early to write off Manchester City's chances of retaining the Premier League title after their 2-1 defeat at West Ham United. Saturday's loss at Upton Park was City's second league defeat of the season and meant they missed out on the chance to reduce what was Chelsea's five-point advantage at the top of the table ahead of the leaders' match at Manchester United on Sunday.
