Pep Guardiola warns Manchester City players: we can still blow title

Pep Guardiola warns Manchester City players: we can still blow titleā€

Having lost 3-0 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Liverpool at Anfield, no sooner had Pep Guardiola's European ambitions taken a battering than his team lost 3-2 to Manchester United in a game which could have seen them tie up the league title.

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.

"What I say to the players is, and they show you every day, in every game that it's not done because if it was done they wouldn't play the way they play".

'It would be better but I am who I am, ' said Guardiola. "We can not forget he was one month injured". They won three games in a row, so in sports it can always happen.

United inflicted just the second League defeat of the season on City by winning the Manchester derby last week with that sensational 3-2 win at the Etihad, and in the process stopped City being confirmed as Champions. "That has happened. We have to try to focus on our games". We can not forget he was two months injured.

"He made a huge effort, because after the action from Ashley Young against United he had problems in his knee". After losing to United, how we played against Liverpool was top.

Looking ahead to the weekend game against Spurs, Guardiola also revealed the latest injury updates on John Stones and summer signing Benjamin Mendy.

"If you judge results, okay: judge results", he said. 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 also the impetus behind the current organisation-wide drive to support countries in moving towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC).

"Since November and December we have already been champions, when I saw pundits and people say: 'Impossible for City to drop points'. I think they need to be helped, but if the guys made a decision to do that, it will happen like this season".

Meanwhile, Liverpool and Tottenham in third and fourth both lag 17 points behind with a far inferior goal difference to City. It's going to be hard for us'. They have been playing great with a lot of success in the last two, three seasons and are in the semi-final of the FA Cup. Now their task is to register five points from the remaining six games. "I will accept the punishment from UEFA if next season we start without the manager there".

"We are able to win two games". But it doesn't depend on the United result, it's in our hands, it's up to us to win our games, and we are able to win [the] two games [needed].
