Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has urged the team to stay calm with the Premier League title race yet to be decided. The Citizens leapfrogged Liverpool to the top of the table after a derby triumph over Manchester United on the road but Guardiola has refused to acknowledge that the Citizens are favourites for the title.
Speaking after the game, he said: “I understand the pressure we have and obviously here at Old Trafford with Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard running behind. I told them we needed to play to win, it doesn’t matter if we concede. Now we go to Burnley and we know how tough it will be. It’s important to be calm. We are still not champions with three games left – it’s incredible with the points we have and Liverpool have. I told the players don’t read tomorrow, don’t watch the television, just rest and sleep a lot and go in there against Burnley.”
