Pep Guardiola has said that he is not getting excited after going top of the table.
“The last thing I’m thinking about is the table,” said the City manager. “Now I want to come back home safe, have a few days off and then Sheffield United. That’s my only concern.
“Today just finished the first leg – we have still 19 games, an incredible marathon. We are going to drop points, we are going to lose games.
“What is important is, whatever happens, be calm – like we were when we were 12th in the table.
“We have to understand why we didn’t win a game and immediately win the next one. This is my only concern.”
“This is the Premier League. Welcome, this is the Premier League.
“It’s so tough. You see the teams up front, then look at West Ham and the incredible season they’re doing, Leicester look unbeatable, and the other teams.
“It’s so tough, so tough for everyone, and every game is complicated.
“It’s important we have a good run and say, ‘Okay, this is the reason why we are here, now the next one’.”
