Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was left to rue a missed opportunity to reduce the gap in the Premier League title race, with the Blues still five points clear at the top following a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.Despite placing the hosts under siege for much of the contest, City were forced to come from behind to seal a points in west London, David Silva striking on the stroke of half-time to cancel out Loic Remy’s opener for the Blues.Chelsea were encamped in their own half for much of the match and will be more satisfied with a point, which leaves them in pole position for a first title in five years with 15 games to go.Though disappointed with the result, Pellegrini praised his side’s attacking attitude and also made a veiled criticism of Chelsea’s style.The City boss, the only manager to speak post-match as Mourinho continued his blank of the media, said: “From the first minute we came for the three points.“Both teams have a clear style of play. Everyone wants to play in the way they think is better. He has a style. You analyse the style of Chelsea. I analyse just the style of my team.“Our team tried to win the game from the first minute till the end. I’m very proud about that.“We create, especially in the first half, clear chances to deserve more than the point.”Maybe they [Chelsea] wanted to keep their five points. I don’t remember a save from Joe Hart and any real dangers around our box.“But if you leave here with more of the possession and more chances then maybe it’s a good point, but for me it’s not a good point, for me, I want the three points.“That’s why I’m not happy about the point but I’m happy about the performance of the team.”From the draw, City were the first team to emerge undefeated from Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this season, ending the Blues’ ten-match winning run.And Pellegrini maintains his side are capable of overcoming the deficit in the remaining months of the season.“Of course it was important to try to close the gap,” he said.“We tried, but we couldn’t. We still have 45 points more to play [for].“This was a very important game, it was not a final. We have time to try to recover those five points.“If we continue playing in the way we did today, I think will be more easy.”Mourinho, who cancelled his usual Friday pre-match media conference in apparent protest at Diego Costa’s three-match suspension for stamping on Liverpool’s Emre Can, again declined to speak publicly.
