Roberto Mancini: "We did a good performance and it was difficult.
"For us it was important to stay 12 behind United, with 10 games left you never say never. Keep on winning and you never know, this is football.
"Last year nobody thought it was possible but 12 points in 10 games... If they lose four...
"We are playing well and didn't concede a lot of chances.
"For me, Aston Villa are a good team and it is strange they're at the bottom."
