Manchester - Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony believes Manchester City must strive for maximum points from their remaining 11 Premier League fixtures to have any chance of catching leaders Chelsea.

Manuel Pellegrini's defending champions play struggling Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday trailing Jose Mourinho's team, who have played one match less, by five points.

And Bony concedes City's hopes of retaining their crown are slender.

"It makes it very difficult now. If Chelsea win (their game in hand), it's very difficult to get close to them," said Bony.

"There are still 11 more games and we have to hope they drop more points.

"Not every game is the same. We have to concentrate on winning the rest of our games and getting maximum points because it's more difficult than before.

"We need to win on Wednesday and then keep winning, it's difficult for us but we still hope we can do it."

Bony, who signed for City for £28 million from Swansea City in January, is still waiting to make his first start for his new club.
