Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said the race for the Premier League title is over and ‘it would be a little bit crazy’ to think about it.
His remarks came after Manchester City won 4-1 at Burnley on Tuesday.
“The title is over. What I read, nobody gives us a chance. It’s done. For the distance we have against Liverpool, it would be a little bit crazy to think about the title, honestly,” Guardiola told the reporters.
Manchester City is second in the Premier League table, eight points behind league-leaders Liverpool, who play Everton later today.
Guardiola, formerly at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, added that they should go game by game as there are other competitions as well.
“We have to think about the derby, go game by game because it is not just the Premier League. There are other competitions, like FA Cup and Carabao and Champions League,” he added.
Guardiola further stated that they want to take forward this winning rhythm.
“The important thing is to take this rhythm in our games for the next fixtures,”
Also, Riyad Mahrez, who scored City’s third on the night, became the first Algerian player to register 50 Premier League goals.
In their next match, Manchester City will lock horns against the city rivals Manchester United.
Both teams will lock horns at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
