Guardiola on this year’s campaign and Tottenham’s leadership
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola who lost his game to Tottenham on Saturday believes the Spurs had a well-deserved win and they are the top contenders for the Premier League title. The Blues who have been suffering due to their minimum number of goals sit 11th on the table with one less games played.
The Spaniard talked about the Spurs leadership on the table saying: "They are top of the league. So obviously they are more contenders than anyone else right now."
"Of course, there are a lot of points to play for, we're eight points down, we have one game less, but there are a lot of teams in front of us. We have to start winning games, if not that will not be possible, we know it. We have to try to win games, we know it.”
"In terms of the game, I think we are not far away, but we struggle to score the goals right now, and it is not about particularly for one person or the other one. That is the reality, 10 goals … is not good enough."
According to Guardiola this year’s campaign will witness the most open race for the title.
"Well, the first year, I remember Chelsea yeah, in the beginning it was so tight, but in the end they take the advantage. The second season, and the third, and the fourth, it was so clear for City two times and Liverpool once," he said.
"This looks like [the most open title race], but again it is nine [sic] games I think we have played so still a lot to play.”
"We will see, you know playing a lot of games this season how it is going to happen. We will see."
