Guardiola believes they gave Liverpool a life by drawing 2-2 yesterday.
The Cityzens welcomed Liverpool at their home ground for the 31st Premier League game of the season.
The match ended 2-2 leaving both the sides separated by a point in the league standings.
Guardiola said: “I felt we let them have a life from here but Liverpool are a joy to watch, I know how good they are and there is no doubt about that but I am so proud of my team. I said to the team: ‘I don’t want one second sad.’”
Pep Guardiola believes they need to win all their seven remaining games in the league.
“We know now that one game and a dropped result, then we will not be champions,” the Catalan said. “Will it be easy? Absolutely not but it will be difficult for them too.
“Seven games in the Premier League is a lot [to win] – they are tough games and they have tough games. I don’t know what will happen but the way we performed throughout the season and against this team to perform the way they did – I am proud. I wanted to win but it doesn’t matter. It was so good.”
