Pep Guardiola insists that Premier League title race is NOT over despite Manchester City’s advantage

Pep Guardiola insists the Premier League title race is NOT over despite Manchester City leading eight points at the summit following a 10th straight win over Brentford while rivals Chelsea and Liverpool











Pep Guardiola insisted the title race was far from over after Manchester City tightened their grip on the top spot at Brentford.

Guardiola’s defending champions took advantage of their closest challengers, Liverpool and Chelsea, who both lost points this week to win a 10th consecutive league victory and move eight points ahead after 20 games.

But the City manager said: ‘There are 54 points to play for and so many more tough teams to play, so when you put that in perspective, eight points is ridiculous. We were ahead 4-0, and in 20 minutes it was 4-3 three, four days ago [against Leicester] so thank you all for your kind words because we win, but I will not believe any of the words you will say about, you think it has already been done.

“The teams we compete with, Chelsea and Liverpool, are more than exceptional. One is champions in Europe and Liverpool have been our big rivals for the last three, four years.

And we have this distance, not because they lose points, but because we win 10 games in a row.

‘When you win 30 points from 30, you can be in a good position, but there are 54 points left to play and we only think of Arsenal, Chelsea and Southampton in the next three games we have.

‘Unfortunately we have to come back to London soon and play against Arsenal at 12.30.

“Maybe right now one of the best teams, in top form. It’s Arsenal maybe in their best moment in the last four, five or six years.

‘Everyone can agree or disagree with me, but it’s another, so rest now, recycle the people and try to do it.’
