Pep Guardiola has instructed his players to remain attentive towards their last three Premier League games.
Manchester City reclaimed their top spot in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Manchester United on Wednesday. Goals from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane ensured City remain defiant to their Premier League title chase.
United created a number of chances in the first half but City ramped up the intensity in the second half and saw the home side crumbling to their incisive attacking display.
The victory leaves the Sky Blues one point clear of the second placed Liverpool and they would have to win all the three games if they were to retain their Premier League title for the first time in the club history.
Guardiola said, “Now is the time to be calm.
“Don’t read, don’t turn on the TV, don’t listen to the radio.”
“You cannot imagine how tough it was for all of us to go out of the Champions League when we thought it was there. It was really, really tough. Then we have Tottenham at home, not the best performance
“But we stayed alive. How we react is more important than other things you can say, then come here to United and win for the third time in a row, especially today with the pressure we had. Nothing changes whether we win or not, they have my incredible respect.”
