Despite beating Chelsea by 2-1 margin last night, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City find themselves 9 points behind Liverpool in the title race.
With Liverpool yet to lose a match, many people have ruled out Pep’s men. However, Manchester City boss, who has lost 3 out of 13 league games this season, is not ready to call it quits just yet.
“People and the pundits say ‘it’s gone, it’s over,” he said.
“Why should I think it’s over? Until May, we are the champions and we want to defend it. We have more pressure. They can lose one or two and I prefer their position.”
“Three teams have more chance to win the Premier League than us but we are in November and we’ll see how we behave.”
“We are nine points behind because one team won all the games except one,” he said.
“The second reason is that we had some games that can happen after back-to-back (titles). If we hadn’t made back-to-back, it would not happen. But the football we have is still there. We have two options — give up or don’t give up. I think the way we played at Anfield, we are not going to give up.”
