Manchester city are playing much better than last year record breaking campaign which he also added his players should not be regarded as losers even when Liverpool pip them to the Premier League title.
City are the favorites to retain their crown after Saturday’s win at Bournemouth (1-0) and Sunday’s goalless, Merseyside derby left them a point ahead of Liverpool with nine matches remaining.
“Everybody knows exactly what we have to do, helping each other. And when this happens we can compete and if we lose, we lose, but no regrets. In our society today the first one has the credit and the second one is an absolute loser. But it’s impossible to feel that about my players.” Says Guardiola.
City had a record on the way of becoming a champion in 2017/18, having 100 points and scoring 106 goals.
Guardiola admits his team could easily have fallen out of title contention and feels their current position is even more remarkable because a League Cup success and progress to the FA cup quarter-finals has resulted in far busier fixture schedule than Liverpool.
Which he also added “of course we want to win the Premier league, I feel the players show me every single day they want to win it, but we have played nine games or 10 games more than Liverpool, it’s a lot of minutes in our legs in all competitions, in spite of all that, still we are there and that’s why am happy. I would prefer it to be like last season’s position to be 12 points in front but that is an exceptional situation.
