UK: Guardiola says 'incredible' season will 'make more sense' if City lift Premier League trophy

United Kingdom, Manchester
May 3, 2019 at 17:59 GMT +00:00 · Published

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola told a press conference in Manchester on Friday that his team is focused on maintaining their incredible form at the end of a tight Premier League title race.

Guardiola highlighted the consistency that led City to 92 points with two games remaining, saying ''except for one defeat in Stanford Bridge and one draw in Liverpool, we won all the games, so it's incredible what we have done, but will make more sense if you are able to lift the Premier League.''

When asked if the season could be considered a failure if they don't retain the title, Guardiola said that after competing "every three days and in all competitions we tried to play and tried to win and sometimes that didn't happen, so it's football, we accept when we lose, we shake hands with the opponents and congratulate them."

City will be looking for their 13th win in a row when they host Leicester at the Eithad Stadium in a must-win clash on Monday after rivals Liverpool, who are only one point behind, travel to Newcastle United on Saturday.
