Guardiola reckons Man City returning to top of table ‘is a lesson to never give up’

Man City manager Pep Guardiola expressed his satisfaction at having reeled Premier League leaders Liverpool back at the top.

The gap between the two sides was seven points back in January, before Manchester City defeated Liverpool on home soil to begin the fightback in earnest.

The Reds have only won two out of their four Premier League games since then, while City have won all of their games in all competitions with the exception of their 2-1 loss to Newcastle United last week.

Unsurprisingly, Guardiola is happy to have regained top spot in the league, even if it may only temporary.

“I am so satisfied, we have a game every three days for three months,’’ Guardiola told the BBC.

“Gabriel Jesus has scored nine goals in a short time and Sergio (Aguero) got three at the weekend, it is important to have two good strikers.

“I don’t know how far we will get, maybe we will die in the road, but we are trying. We have played one more game than Liverpool, it’s good to be top but Liverpool has a game at Old Trafford.”

“I don’t think too much about it but four or five days ago we could have been seven points behind, it is a lesson to never give up,”

“We have an incredible test on Sunday against Chelsea.”
