Pep Guardiola: Manchester City could still blow Premier League title

FBL-EUR-C1-MAN CITY-LIVERPOOL Pep Guardiola was banished to the stands as Manchester City lost in the Champions League quarter-finals to Liverpool

"In football it can happen, of course it can, I assure you", said Guardiola when asked if City could yet feel the pressure of a challenge from United.

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.

- Similarly, Southampton have now failed to win any of their last six Premier League games when scoring first (D4 L2), losing last time out away at Arsenal despite taking the lead.

City missed the chance to claim the title last Saturday when they were surprisingly beaten at home by second-placed Manchester United.

Aguero suffered a knee problem that kept him out for a month before the Argentina striker managed two second-half substitute appearances in City's last two defeats - by Manchester United in the league and Liverpool in the Champions League.

The Belgium worldwide has been regularly linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid in recent season, with his current deal set to expire at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

The Warriors lost 4-3 to the Cleveland Cavaliers despite leading 3-1 with three matches to play, while Madrid managed to finish fourth in La Liga 14 years ago, having held an eight-point lead at the top with 12 matches to play. Of course it can happen, no doubts about that. Real Madrid, many years ago, lose six games in a row and didn't win the league.

Protestors have shown him black flags, launched giant black balloons and raised slogans like " Modi go back". There were at least 10,000 police personnel present to prevent the situation from worsening.


"We have to try to be who we were during the season and think we need five points", Guardiola said.

"The players know that".

"I think Manchester City agreed to it but the other top teams, United and Chelsea I think, they didn't want it", the City boss said. In the National Basketball Association finals one team recovered from 3-1 down. The Saints, 18th in the table and three points adrift of safety, have just one league win to their name in 19 attempts.

- Chelsea have won only one of their last four Premier League games in which they've scored first (D1 L2) - prior to this, they'd won 22 games consecutively when scoring first.

City and United was a heated affair. When I heard pundits and fans in November they said it's all done, it's impossible for City to drop points. But in one week we lost three games, that happened.

Of course it is tough but it is tough for everybody in the Premier League.

"It's in hour hands, that is the good advantage".
