Manchester City on brink of title after sinking Tottenham

  • FBL-EUR-C1-MAN CITY-LIVERPOOL

City will hope to halt a run of three straight defeats as they look to wrap up the league title.

Guardiola is not ruling out further slip ups from his side and used examples from Spanish football and the National Basketball Association to prove his point.

Guardiola said: "It can happen". West Brom caretaker boss Darren Moore picked up a point against Swansea in his first match in charge last weekend, but there is no getting away from the fact that they are on their way to the Championship and this could prove another long afternoon.

"Since November and December we have already been champions, when I saw pundits and people say: 'Impossible for City to drop points'".

- Saints have only won one of their nine Premier League games against Chelsea at St Mary's Stadium (D2 L6), winning 2-1 in March 2013 thanks to goals from Jay Rodriguez and Rickie Lambert.

"We are able to win the two games [we need to confirm the title] and we will do that".

"Dealing with the end of season pressure is good for our future". We have to handle that. If, at the end, we are not able and United win the league, all we can say is congratulations United, reflect on what we have done bad in the last month and move forward.


"In football it can happen, of course it can, I assure you", Guardiola said.

"Real Madrid, years ago (in 2004), lost six games (from seven) and didn't win the league".

"Of course it can happen. Hopefully he will be ready for last games and World Cup", Guardiola said of the Argentine, who was injured in a tackle by United's Ashley Young that could have resulted in a penalty.

"Never before in the National Basketball Association had one team in the finals recovered from 3-1 down, and two years ago (Cleveland) Cavaliers beat Golden State Warriors 4-3". But Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool means the Abu Dhabi United Group have still yet to secure European football's top prize 10 years into their reign. "They can win all six, so we have to do it".

Guardiola, however, insists this is not something he needs to point out to his players because they have shown no signs of complacency throughout the campaign.

He added: "No, I don't think so".

Premier League chiefs met yesterday and a majority of the 20 club's voted against introducing the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system for the 208/2019 season. "It is going to be a hard game for us".
