Guardiola enjoying Premier League title pressure

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says his players are thriving on the pressure of challenging for back-to-back Premier League titles.

City have a chance of retaining the league on Sunday with a win over Brighton regardless of Liverpool results, who face Wolverhampton.

"There's pressure but that's nice. We are playing for something unique, to win the Premier League. It is difficult to win once in a lifetime, imagine two,” he said.

"The players have to feel the pressure, to be nervous, to know it will be difficult. But when that happens and it works, it's nicer."

Advice to players

"Do what they have done in two seasons. Go out there, be aggressive, be focused in all departments, and try to score as many goals as possible,” said Guardiola when asked what advice he will be giving his players before kick-off at the Amex Stadium.

Guardiola’s men will travel to Brighton seeking a 14th successive Premier League victory.
