Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has ignored his side’s recently restored tag as favourites to win the Premier League title after almost catching up with league leaders Liverpool. The Citizens are in touching distance of the Reds and with just two points separating them.
Speaking to the media ahead of their midweek clash against Everton, the Spaniard 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.”
He added, “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 we will see about the results, how the table is.”
Speaking about the next match against Everton, the Manchester City gaffer said, “Goodison Park is always a tough game for us, but the approach is the same — going there to try to win the game and, of course, we have the chance, because Liverpool don’t play, to go top of the league.”
