Title heat is fuelling our quadruple drive - Guardiola

Share

The way we started to play against Fulham, they show me we want to do it.

Next up is another game against relegation-threatened opposition, with Cardiff going to City on Wednesday.

Guardiola isn't thinking that far ahead just yet and he urged his players to take it one game at a time.

On whether he should have been accredited with the second goal against Tottenham, he stated, "The three points are the most important thing".

City have the slight advantage in the title race, sitting top by a point after the 2-0 win at Fulham, having played the same number of games as Liverpool.

However, Liverpool's title bid looked up in the air 20 minutes from time after Lucas Moura cancelled out Roberto Firmino's opener in the first-half.

Gaurdiola said: "Seven games left for the Premier League, and it's easy: we have to win every game to be champions".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp accepts luck has played a part in their rise to title contenders but stressed the job the players have done should not be underestimated. "No matter the next competition, we will win the game".

The wins keep on coming for now permanent manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but Manchester United's sluggish performance in Saturday's 2-1 win over Watford can not just be written off as a typical post-international break display. But Liverpool are trying to do something harder than entertain this season - they're trying to put an end to a streak of futility that's lasted much longer than anyone at the club ever expected.

'Looking at the league table that's all that matters.

"I didn't score for a couple of games, that's ok". "The fans went home happy but only time will tell if it's gave us maybe that [boost]".

"We always have to wait until when [we have to show] we can handle the pressure - until now it's going well so we have to keep it like that".

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher disagreed with Neville's assessment of the remaining fixtures, saying: "I think for Liverpool, they probably have the toughest game on paper out of the way, and if they get past Southampton and Chelsea and are in the same position, that's when City's tough run comes".
