Guardiola also talked about the current situation in Premier League.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola wants his side to win all remaining games in Premier League. The Cityzens moved back to the top of the Premier League after a 3-0 win over Brighton on Wednesday night.
Liverpool secured a thumping victory over Manchester United at Anfield and they were two points clear of the City. Pep’s side defeated Brighton and retained their position at the top.
Manchester City were recently knocked out by Liverpool in the FA Cup semifinal. They are yet to win a trophy this season.
After the midweek victory at Etihad, City boss Pep Guardiola was happy with his side’s display.
He told BBC Sport, “It was a good test and we behaved exceptional. That is why we won the game,”
“We didn’t let them play. Brighton have this quality. In the second half we found the goals that we could not find in the first half.
“Nathan Ake has a twisted ankle. It is not perfect but it was good to give minutes to Ruben. John [Stones] was a little bit tight. Hopefully nothing too bad but we will see tomorrow. Ruben is important. It is difficult seven weeks out to come back and pick up the rhythm. He is mentally so strong and that is why he show so many good things.”
On asking about the Champions League, he added, “The feeling today is that we are now mathematically going to play in the Champions League. People can say it is normal but it is not. You only have to look at the incredible teams fighting to get into the Champions League.
Guardiola also talked about the current situation in Premier League, “Now for the Premier League, we are not stupid. If we drop just two points, Liverpool will be champions. If we win all games we will be champions. The players know it. We know the tough games we have and we must try to perform like today and win all the games. If we do that we will celebrate, if not we will congratulate Liverpool.”
