Guardiola admit Premier League is Man City's main focus

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has insisted that their primary focus remains on winning the Premier League.

Guardiola has been backed to win the double with his side in the Champions League final where they are set to meet Chelsea but according to the Spaniard, their attention currently was with the league.

“The FA Cup and Carabao Cup is over, so we have to focus on winning the Premier League. We still have to make the points though, when you have the points you are champions, until then it’s Liverpool.

“Still we are not, the people for one-two months say it is done. No, we had to go to Leicester and win away, Aston Villa and win away, Crystal Palace and win away. We have the position we have and we will try the next three games we have to try to win the Premier League.

“After it depends on the day it happens, we will then prepare for the Champions League final. I am pretty sure for the final of the Champions League we will be ready to compete and play the best game as possible,” Guardiola said after their loss to Chelsea on Saturday.

City was about to win the Premier League over the weekend but the celebrations were put on hold as they lost 2-1 to Chelsea.

Their opportunity to be crowned as the English champions will come on Friday when Guardiola's men travel to the northeast to face Newcastle United.
