EPL: Guardiola speaks on winning title against Mourinho next week

[ad_1]

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has told his players to forget about winning the Premier League title against Manchester United and focus on the Champions League.

City are one win away from their first title in four years, after a 3-1 win at Everton in Saturday’s late kick-off.

It means they can clinch the title when Jose Mourinho brings his side to the Etihad next Saturday.

However, Guardiola is focused on the crucial quarterfinal first leg away to Liverpool three days beforehand.

“We were a long time without being together, and after three weeks I didn’t want to play with maybe seven, eight or nine players who are going to play on Wednesday to have gone four weeks without playing together.

“So that’s why we needed to be together to find the pace, to find our rhythm, the way we want to play, for our massive, massive two games against Liverpool.

“I understand the people are talking about United now but all the decisions I am going to take is thinking about Liverpool, the game before United and after United, so that is what it is,” the Spaniard told reporters.
