Pep Guardiola tells Man City players to forget about Liverpool’s fixtures
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has told his players to forget about leaders Liverpool in their pursuit of a second straight Premier League title.
City beat 10-man Wolves 3-0 on Monday to reduce the gap between themselves and the Reds to four points.
“We can’t do anything about Liverpool’s games, they belong to them,” said Guardiola.
“The only way to put that pressure on is by being there and maybe one day they fail.”
How tight is this season’s title race?
Normally Liverpool’s impressive start would mean a sizeable lead.
However, a four-point cushion is the smallest of any team with at least 55 points after 22 matches of a Premier League season.
Never before have two teams had more than 51 points at this stage in the competition but this term Liverpool have 57 and City have 53.
