Guardiola: City Are Not UCL Flops


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says his side could still slip up and allow Manchester United to win the Premier League title.

'Sometimes the referee sees body language that's not correct.

There have been suggestions that City's run of losses could be down to Guardiola's demanding style of play, but he rejected those claims saying the issues with his side are mental rather than physical. The players know that, it's not necessary to tell them. That is a good advantage.

Were City to win one, draw two and lose three, United could still theoretically win the Premier League with a flawless run-in and enough firepower to overturn a 28-goal deficit.

A victory, combined with a United defeat against West Brom on Sunday, would secure the title, but it was put to Guardiola that if City lose and United beat West Brom and Bournemouth before his side play again they may start to feel the pressure.In this scenario United would have cut the deficit to seven points having played a match more.

'I don't know about Swansea (next week) if he'll be ready, but hopefully for the last games if we need him and especially for the World Cup, ' said Guardiola.

While Guardiola admitted Sergio Agüero's ability to play again this season is in the balance because of a knee problem, the Spaniard said the 32-year-old David Silva may appear less next year. We can not forget he had a month injured. He made a huge effort because with the knee problem he couldn't train after the action from Ashley Young against United. "We have 13 or 14 players for the next game plus the kids".

City is also without midfielder Fernandinho, who is suspended, and John Stones is still out with a thigh injury. When I heard pundits and fans in November they said it's all done, it's impossible for City to drop points. Great players like (Moussa) Dembele, (Jan) Vertonghen, (Dele) Alli, playing great with a lot of success. Now 13 points clear at the top of the table with six games to go, Guardiola is nearly certain to add his first Premier League title to the League Cup for this season's trophy haul. "It is going to be hard for us".

Meanwhile, Liverpool and Tottenham in third and fourth both lag 17 points behind with a far inferior goal difference to City. We need two wins, and when we win the first one the second will be easier. If we are not able to in the end and United win the league then all we can says is "congratulations". We played a better competition this season in the Champions League and we'll try to come back next season stronger to do well.
