Despite leading from one of the opening weeks of the season, and opening up a 15 point lead at the top of the table, Pep Guardiola has refused to admit that Manchester City will be the Champions at the end of the current campaign.
Guardiola’s men have only dropped seven points in the League this, season, suffering defeat at Liverpool, the only defeat of the season today, while also dropping points against Everton and Crystal Palace.
Meanwhile, their nearest challengers Manchester United suffered their fourth defeat of the season on Wednesday in a 2-0 reverse against Spurs, leaving them 15 points behind their rivals from across Manchester.
However, despite their seemingly unassailable lead and their devastating form, Guardiola is continuing to deny that his side have already won the title.
“There is 13 games, 39 points to play, we are 15 ahead, It’s not over. We have tough games left to play.”
City still have to play six of the top nine clubs with games against United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Leicester, Burnley and Everton all still to come. However, with the best of the rest so far behind, it is almost inconceivable that City will lose a minimum of five of their 13 games remaining, which is the minimum they need if anyone is to even be given a chance of challenging them for the title.
