EPL: How Chelsea helped Man City win Premier League title – Guardiola


Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has revealed how Chelsea helped his side claim the Premier League title.

Guardiola said he knew way back in September his side were going to win the Premier League title when they beat Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

He said the win proved to his players that they were going to be able to lift the Premier League trophy.

He spoke with reporters after Manchester United lost 1-0 to West Brom on Sunday, a result that confirmed City as champions.

Guardiola said, “I think winning at Stamford Bridge gave us the confidence.

“Because last season against contenders we were not so good. We won few games.

“Winning at Stamford Bridge gave us a feeling of, ‘OK, against the last champions, we are able to come here and play.

“But in general we were so, so stable [this season]. We concede goals, but the most important details is not the goals you concede but the chances you concede and every game was few, despite playing so offensively.”
