Pep Guardiola names Man City’s biggest achievement this season
Liverpool are making a strong case to dethrone the Blues as Premier League champions with Jurgen Klopp‘s side pushing far harder than any other team manager last season.
However, City have fought back from three defeats in December and victory at Goodison Park on Wednesday sent them temporarily top of the table.
For Guardiola, the fact that City are still fighting for the title is an achievement in itself, and victory on Sunday against Chelsea will convince him that they will be there until the end of the season.
“I have known in the last five or six years the position where the champions have been the year after. All of them were out and didn’t have a chance to win the Premier League,” he said.
“However, we are there. That is what I like the most in this season. So when people say that you underestimated Newcastle, you underestimated teams in Europe, or anyone, I say we are in the Carabao Cup final and fighting in all the competitions.
“In the last two seasons, Leicester and Chelsea had no chance, but we are there and that is top. That is what I like the most but we want to be there until the end.
“If we win against Chelsea it will help us and if we win the game I am pretty sure we will be there again fighting to be champions again.”
