Manchester United 0-2 Manchester City: Pep Guardiola doubts Liverpool will drop points in Premier League title run-in

Pep Guardiola admitted his delight as Manchester City guaranteed title success is in their own hands with Wednesday’s 2-0 defeat of local rivals Manchester United.

City moved back top of the Premier League table with their victory, one point ahead of Liverpool with three games left to play.

Neither of the title-chasing teams has a particularly tough run-in, and Guardiola doubts the Reds are going to drop many points over the final weeks of the season.

“Liverpool I don’t think are going to drop too many points, but it’s in our hands,” Guardiola said after Wednesday’s match,

“Three games, we won the last 11. It’s incredible what these players have done so far, but still we have a job to do.

“If that victory happened in November, December or January we would celebrate it more, enjoy it more. Maybe tonight we can enjoy it, but tomorrow it’s over, it’s gone, so you have to be focused, so focused.”
