Pep Guardiola wowed by Man City performance

Pep Guardiola wowed by Man City performance

Guardiola's side will need goals to maintain their title charge and will look to their talisman Sergio Aguero to get the goals. That's why being there [in contention] is incredible.

Whatever happens in the title battle between Manchester City and Liverpool, which will go down to the final day of the season, the struggle for dominance between the pair isn't going to stop on Sunday.

"Arriving at this stage, two games left with 92 points, after 100 points last season, being there, that is the most satisfaction I've had as a manager".

"I would not say that 100 points was bad and that we are not satisfied with what we did last season but, at the same time, we were seven points behind (this season). We've done the same job, all the club, and the players, of course, are the reason why", he said.

"When you get 100 points, everyone thinks we won't do what we have to do (the following season), that we will do less because we won, but it has been completely the opposite", the Catalan manager said.

Guardiola: Proud of team.

This was their title to lose, and the ultimately did so after poor results against Chelsea and Crystal Palace, but that should not distract you from their quality.

Vardy has scored more goals than any other player when taking on the "Big Six" sides in the Premier League since the start of the 2014-15 campaign. "There are two that were "wow".

"One is Luis Enrique's Barcelona with Messi, Suarez and Neymar, the second one is Liverpool".

Rodgers came closer to ending that drought than any other Liverpool boss over the past three decades as his side fell just two points short of City in 2013/14.

"I think they are the best two sides I've faced as a manager".

In the history of the Premier League, we have never seen a title race like this one.

He said: "Before, they were a counter-attack team but, now with Rodgers, they have another way to play and they can use that and control all parts of the game". They lost just two matches all season, one of which was a shock 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough in February 2009. "Then, in the next two matches, winning at Old Trafford [against Manchester United] and Burnley, where everyone thought we'd drop points".

"They always feel that something is always going to go wrong, but Pep and this set of players are a different breed to anything Manchester City have had in the past".

Guardiola has guided his team this far despite injuries to key players, including De Bruyne and Benjamin Mendy, both of whom have been unavailable for the majority of this campaign.
