Guardiola surrender League title to Liverpool


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has conceded the title to Liverpool as his team suffered a 6th Premier League defeat of the season at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Tottenham beat Man City 2-0 to move to 5th while City remain 2nd, 22 points behind leaders Liverpool who can win the title as early as March.

When asked whether Liverpool have won the title during the post-match interview, Guardiola said:

“Yes. They are far away, they are unstoppable, a lot of points. Of course, now the target is for the competitions and to qualify for the Champions League next season.

“Two seasons ago when we had 100 points, around 19 ahead of (Jose) Mourinho, and 20 or so from Liverpool. In that period Liverpool were strong, they are stronger right now, but they were strong, but today is not the day to talk about a rebuild,” he said.

Manchester City have now lost 6 games in the Premier League this season, their joint-most in a single campaign under Guardiola (6 in 2016-17).
