Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has quashed down his team’s chances of winning the league title this season after their 4-1 win over Burnley on Tuesday.
The win saw them narrow the gap between them and leaders Liverpool to eight points but when asked about his team’s quest to defending their title, Guardiola’s jokingly said that the race was over.
“The title is over. From what I read nobody gives us a chance. It’s done. I don’t believe it, but it is not about whether I believe it or I don’t believe it. It is about the next game.
“Our team is stable and that’s what we want. For the distance we have against Liverpool, it would be crazy to think about the title, honestly.
“We have to think about the (Manchester) derby (on Saturday), game by game. There are other competitions-the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and the Champions League. It is important to take this rhythm for the next games.”
In the game against Burnely Gabriel Jesus, starting in the absence of the injured Sergio Aguero, ended a run of eight games without scoring by netting City’s first two goals with Rodri and Riyad Mahrez adding the other goals as Robbie Brady grabbed a consolation for the host.
