Pep Refusing To Set Points Target

Pep Refusing To Set Points Target

Pep Guardiola says he has no idea how many points Manchester City need to win the title but has told his players to keep on winning.

City cut the gap at the top of the Premier League back to four points as Gabriel Jesus scored twice before an own goal from Conor Coady wrapped up the points in a 3-0 win over Wolves last night.

The title race resumes next weekend, when City travel to newly managerless Huddersfield, while Liverpool host Crystal Palace.

With Liverpool on 57 points from 22 games, a points tally in line with the record 100 City accrued last season may be required to win the title again, but Guardiola is not interested in setting targets.

“I don’t have a magic ball to discover how many (points),” he said. “I said to them ‘don’t watch the calendar for the Liverpool games, forget about it, then you lose your own games.

Then it’s over’. “The best way is to look at the next game – Huddersfield, new manager, we must find a way to beat them.

“If Liverpool win then I will congratulate Jurgen (Klopp) because it will be well deserved. All we can do is win our games. You saw the incredible result they had. That’s why I’m pleased with the game today.”
