Pep Guardiola insists Manchester City’s never say dying attitude could be a big lesson for them in the Premier League title race.
City got the better of Everton and leapfrogged Liverpool to reclaim the top spot although the Reds do have a match in hand. Goals from Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus secured an important win over the Toffees to pile more pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s side.
City looked to have fallen much behind in the title race as they were trailing 10 points behind the title favourites in December. But despite a number of hiccups City have battled their way back to the coveted spot and are likely to push Liverpool further to unsettle their title hopes.
Guardiola said, “It’s good, sleeping being top of the table, it’s much better, but Liverpool have one game extra at Old Trafford.
“I don’t think too much about it really. We have an incredible test next Sunday [against Chelsea], the cup and Champions League start again, so I don’t think much about being first or second.
“A month ago, we could have gone 10 points behind. Four or five days ago, we could have been seven and now we’re top.
“It’s a lesson not to give up. Many things are going to happen.”
