Guardiola fires title warning: Of course United can still win

Sidney Guerrero | 14 April, 2018, 10:27

City took a 2-0 lead into half-time thanks to goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan, knowing a win would secure the Premier League title.

City supporters, by and large, are not an overly optimistic bunch.

City of course overhauled United's 8 point lead at the top of the table to lift the 2011/12 title, but surely 13 points in just six games is too much...isn't it?

Guardiola seems to have caught the bug.

The result narrowed the gap to at the top to still what looks like an unassailable 13 point lead, but having also now lost three games in a week (two to Liverpool in the Champions League and and the Manchester Derby), Pep Guardiola is refusing to rule out an end of season collapse, and has used examples from Spanish football and the National Basketball Association to prove his point.

"Never before in the National Basketball Association had one team in the final recovered from 3-1 down". "They do great pressing and have a lot of talented players, like [Mousa] Dembele, [Jan] Vertonghen, Dele Alli, [Christian] Eriksen, Son [Heung-min] and [Harry] Kane is their top scorer".

The Red Devils used the action as a payback to replicate what the Citizens did to them in the reverse fixture won by Pep Guardiola's side last December.

Liverpool boss Klopp reveals Salah in training: Man City? I'm not…
Loris is a young keeper with great potential and he does a great job". "Everywhere he was, all the people recognise his manuscript", Klopp said.

"So of course it can happen, no doubts about that", Guardiola said. It is in our hands.

Guardiola, however, insists this is not something he needs to point out to his players because they have shown no signs of complacency throughout the campaign.

Adding that John Stones will join Aguero in sitting out against Spurs, Guardiola continued: "I don't know [when Aguero will be back]".

"They know that. It is not necessary to say it", he said.

"They are a fantastic team with great players", he said.

"But it's in our hands, we don't depend on anyone else, and that's a good advantage. We have handled the pressure, good and bad situations, all season".

"He played the last 20 minutes [against Liverpool] and after the game said: 'I can not run, I have a lot of pain, I can not run.' I don't know about Swansea [City, on Sunday-week] if he'll be ready but hopefully for the last games if we need him and especially for the World Cup".
