  • Guardiola fires title warning Of course United can still win PL

The Citizens travel to Wembley tomorrow night knowing a win will put them on the brink of their third Premier League title, while another loss will bring about City's longest run of defeats in 12 seasons. As soon as Chris Smalling's well-timed finish struck the back of Ederson's goal last Saturday to give United a 3-2 lead, numerous home fans at the Etihad Stadium turned to each other and lamented their collapse.

"They know that [the players]".

Guardiola seems to playing mind games to help his players.

City have a 13-point lead over second-placed Manchester United with six league games left but have been jolted by a run of three straight defeats in all competitions.

Going into the game against Spurs, City lost both UEFA Champions League ties against Liverpool and also suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Manchester United in the league.

"The fact is that since November or December we were already champions".


"In football in 90 minutes you can win or lose, but we need to be more consistent through the whole season in result and performance because you need to be consistent if you are going to win".

"When I saw the pundits and the people in November, they say it's already done, it's impossible that City - if they don't lose in six months, three or four months - it's impossible for them to drop points". They are able to win their games - all six. "I think they need to be helped, but if the guys chose to do that, it will happen".

They were trying to overturn a three-goal first-leg deficit and were level at 1-1 in the return game when the striker was introduced, but lost 2-1.

The former Barca boss harked back to Real Madrid in 2003/04 as a reminder that it ain't over till it's over. Now their task is to register five points from the remaining six games.

The Cherries sit just two points off the magical 40-mark and they are unbeaten in their last three league games thanks to two draws (Crystal Palace and Watford) and a win over West Brom. "The first test is tomorrow and we will try hard". If we are not able to in the end and United win the league then all we can says is "congratulations".

"In football it can happen, of course it can, I assure you", said Guardiola when asked if City could yet feel the pressure of a challenge from United.
