Pep Guardiola Plays Down Manchester City’s Odds Of Winning Title

Manchester City’s convincing 3-1 win over Arsenal last weekend have restored them as the favourites to win the Premier League this season but Pep Guardiola is the least bit concerned.

Liverpool drew 1-1 against West Ham United on Monday evening to drop closer towards the English champions. Now the Reds are within Pep Guardiola’s grasp with just a 3-point lead.

With just 13 games left in the league campaign and City’s superior goal difference, the Anfield side can quite easily lose out on the title with just one more slip-up.

Guardiola said, “Three or four days ago we were already done – the champions were Liverpool. And now we are favourites! Maybe in three days, we will be leading – or we could be six points behind.

“We try to be calm in this situation. There will be a lot of surprises and it will be tough for teams to win games. All the teams have the abilities and skills to create problems. What I’m more concerned about is to never forget who we are as a team. When doing what we have to do we are a strong team. That’s what I want to watch every single day. After that, we will see about the results, how the table is.”
