Pep Guardiola speaks on being under pressure with Liverpool’s close call


The curtains of the 2018/2019 season will soon be drawn and no winner has been decided yet as there is a very close race between Liverpool defending champions Man City.

Liverpool were able to return to the summit after their 3-1 win over Southampton but Man City have got a game at hand and that makes it a more complicated race.

When approached by Journalists on the mental impact of the close race on his team, Pep Guardiola says his Man City team are not under any pressure noting that the Reds team are in a more delicate state as they are under more pressure than his team.

He stressed that he is focused on his team as it would be impossible to emerge winner of the EPL without winning all games left until the end of the season.

However, Man City will still face Man United and Tottenham before the end of the season to test their resolve as the most difficult fixtures before the end of the season while same goes to the Reds team.

Meanwhile, the Citizens are now in the finals of the FA Cup for the 11th time in their history which gives them the chance of another trophy.
