Pep Guardiola has warned that it is too early to concede the Premier League title to Liverpool, while calling on his Manchester City side to return to winning ways.
“From January, February last season people said, ‘The Premier League is over’. To live with that is not easy,” the manager explained to reporters on Thursday.
“One month ago people talked about [the match against] Liverpool and before we had three or four games.
“Football is that you are able to win a lot of games and you are able to lose a lot of games. When I was at Barcelona for one period I lost four games in a row.”
Defeats against Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Leicester City in recent weeks have shattered City’s aura of near-invincibility in the Premier League, having lost just one of their previous 30 games in a run stretching back to January 2018.
