Pep Guardiola’s side will take on Aston Villa to end their 3-match winless streak.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is confident that his side will defend the Premier League title this season despite a poor run of form. Man City are currently behind Arsenal in top-flight table.
Pep has insisted that his Manchester City side “are going to win the Premier League” title this season. They played out regular draw games against Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Man City now moved to third in the table and three points behind the Gunners at the summit. The Cityzens were held out for a 3-3 draw with Spurs last weekend.
While talking at a press conference ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Aston Villa, Guardiola has defended the reaction of his players and remains confident that Man City can win a record-breaking fourth successive Premier League title this season.
Guardiola spoke to y Sky Sports: “No, I never use these kinds of situations. Today, the motivation is to try to do it better. Sometimes the decisions help, sometimes they don’t.
“I learned from where I come from that, if you want to win something, you have to do much, much better than your opponents.
“When you are level, you always have the feeling that it’s not going to happen, so you have to do much, much better. This is what you have to do.
“My feeling today is we are going to win the Premier League. If you ask me, we are going to win the Premier League. If we play at the level we played against Liverpool and Tottenham, we are going to win it again.
“The people don’t believe it already because of three draws, but we are going to do it again, knowing that it is not easy, because no team has done it yet [won four titles in a row].
“That’s why the difficulty is there. But if you ask me today, ‘what are you feeling?’ We are going to do it again.”
