Pep Guardiola was expecting his team to beat Chelsea and become Premier League champions at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

However, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea had another plan as the Blues came from behind to win the game 2-1 and ensure that City’s champagne will be kept at least until their next game.

Guardiola has seen his side lose twice to Chelsea in the past two weeks, after the Blues beat them in the FA Cup semi-final and now in the Premier League.

The Man City manager has now maintained that he’d settle his score with Chelsea when the two teams meet in the Champions League final on May 29, but first, his attention has been turned to their next league game against Newcastle.

Guardiola said: “We are sad we lost, we wanted to close out the Premier League, but we have to be focused. Football is unpredictable and we have to focus on the game at Newcastle.

“In 21 days we are going to face Chelsea again in the Champions League final. We need to learn from this and before that try to win the three points to win the title.”
