Guardiola unsure over length of Aguero injury absence

Guardiola unsure over length of Aguero injury absence

Guardiola said his side need to put their disastrous run of losses behind them despite still holding a 13-point lead at the top of the table with six games remaining.

Guardiola is not ruling out further slip ups from his side and used examples from Spanish football and the National Basketball Association to prove his point.

"Sergio Aguero is injured, Benjamin Mendy is out, John Stones is not ready and Fernandinho is suspended", Guardiola said in his press conference on Friday. "That has happened. We have to try to focus on our games". West Brom caretaker boss Darren Moore picked up a point against Swansea in his first match in charge last weekend, but there is no getting away from the fact that they are on their way to the Championship and this could prove another long afternoon.

'Everything can happen. People say we are already champions but we've lost three in a row and we can lose again.

Were City to win one, draw two and lose three, United could still theoretically win the Premier League with a ideal run-in and enough firepower to overturn a 28-goal deficit. We have handled the pressure - good and bad situations - all season.

Regarding how pressure is more intense when trying to seal the title, Guardiola said: "That will be good for our future, you have to handle that". We have to win two and [against Spurs] we're going to start to do it the way we do it.

"Of course it can happen, I assure you".

That could very well happen this season, of course, with an FA Cup semi final clash with Manchester United to look forward to, but the only thing on the Tottenham players' minds' at the moment will be their clash with City in the Premier League tomorrow.

Mourinho had told them to turn down their music and United players did not forget to the incident as they replayed the scene to their neighbours, The Sun reports. [In 2016], never before, in the National Basketball Association finals, one team recovered from 3-1 down. One year ago Cavaliers won 4-3 against Golden State Warriors, winning three games in a row. "We have 14 players plus the kids".

"When the opponent is good, we will congratulate our opponents on beating us, and after learn from that for the next game". "Because if it was done they would not play the way they play", Guardiola added.

In the albeit highly unlikely scenario that City implode spectacularly in the coming weeks, here's what would have to happen for them to fail to win the Premier League.

THREE DEFEATS IN the space of a week have taken some of the gloss off a Manchester City side that was being pre-maturely hailed as one of the best club sides of all-time earlier this season.
