Guardiola thinks title race is still ongoing

Pep Guardiola is adamant that the Premier League title is still alive, even though they have just taken a strong lead this week by defeating Arsenal.

Manchester City secured a 4-1 win against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, leaving them just two points behind the current leaders, with two matches still to be played.

Guardiola and his team have the opportunity to move to the top of the league table by beating Fulham on Sunday.

The City manager said: “People start to say they have the feeling it’s over, but it’s not over. It will be over when it’s over, and it’s not over.

“We still have seven games. Every single game we play for special things, for our opponents and ourselves. We have to do our game.”

Guardiola has downplayed the significance of City’s midweek performance and results against Arsenal, despite it being a major psychological blow for the Gunners.

“It’s been normal as usual, nothing special,” said Guardiola at a press conference. “We make a recovery training session. Today is a day off, so nothing special.”

The absence of Nathan Ake, who is still recovering from a hamstring injury, means he won’t be available for the upcoming game at Craven Cottage. However, the club is optimistic that he will have recovered in time for the Champions League semi-final matches against Real Madrid, which are scheduled to take place next month.

Guardiola said: “He’s much better, he seems good. The symptoms are good. Still he is not training with the team but I think he won’t be (much) longer.”
