Manchester City 2017-18 Guardiola's masterpiece about more than money
14 April, 2018, 10:25
City require five points from their remaining six games to clinch the Premier League title and Guardiola admits it is "the most important chapter of the season". City are 13 points clear of United with six games left - two...
However, speaking ahead of Saturday's tough trip to Tottenham, the former Barcelona boss pointed to a famous late collapse from Real Madrid in the 2003-04 season - in which they let slip an eight-point advantage and dropped from first to fourth in the final 12 matches - as proof nothing can be taken for granted.
Going into the game against Spurs, City lost both UEFA Champions League ties against Liverpool and also suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Manchester United in the league. They are able to win their games, all six.
"Football is emotions. Since November, December, we were already champions".
With Harry Kane chasing down the Golden Boot with vigour (even putting his daughter's life on the line to claim a goal at Stoke), I can see Spurs continuing Pep's miserable run. And a couple of years ago the Cavaliers won three games in a row to recover from 3-1 down - something that had never happened before in the National Basketball Association finals - and beat the Warriors 4-3.
"Hopefully he will be back for our last few games if we need him and especially for his World Cup". We handled the pressure between the good and bad moments for the entire season, not just in this period. If we are not able to in the end and United win the league then all we can says is "congratulations". Of course it can happen - in football, in sports.
