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. City's reverse in east London capped a bad week for Pellegrini's side, who days earlier had squandered a two-goal lead in a draw away to CSKA Moscow that left their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League in the balance.

The state of emergency in the north and centre of the Sinai will remain in place for three months, the president's office said.
