Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola doesn’t believe the Premier League title race is just between Manchester City and Liverpool. Despite Chelsea being 12 points behind leaders Liverpool, Guardiola believes the Blues can still win the title this season if Chelsea win games in a row.
“Three or four days ago, we were already done,”
“The champions were Liverpool, and now we can be leading. We try to be calm. There will be surprises and it will be tough for teams to win every game.
“Non contenders have the ability to create problems. What I’m more concerned about is never forget who we are as a team and doing what we have to do. That’s what I want to watch. After, we see about the results, the table.
“I would say it’s typical in England. What’s not common is what happened last season – 18 games in a row, 100 points. Normal is what happens now. You can win or lose every single game. Every team involved in the title, or Europe, or staying in the Premier League.
“I never said Tottenham is not there. Chelsea, I never said. United making this run every single week and they will be there.
“Now we see the table and see the first two or three and we don’t look further than that. Chelsea can win games in a row and be a contender. There are 39 points to play, and nine or 10 behind it’s not too much. Everyone is ready to take points.”
