Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has asked his players not to worry over Liverpool’s results and fixtures in the race for this season’s Premier League title.
City narrowed the gap to leaders Liverpool back to four points yesterday with a 3-0 home win against 10-man Wolves.
Speaking to reporters at a post-match briefing, the Spanish tactician said: “I don’t have a magician’s ball to discover when they (Liverpool) are going to lose points, I don’t know.
“And I said to them [City players], don’t look and be scared, don’t watch the calendar for the Liverpool games, forget about it.
“Because normally when that happens you lose your games, in my experience. If you think they are going to lose in that game or that game, you are distracted and you lose your games. And after, it’s over.
“All we can do is be in there. Be in there and feel we are there, and win our games. Today we did it. Monday, I don’t always like to play Monday when everybody has already played, against one team you see the incredible results they [Wolves] had of course, it’s 10 against 11 so it’s a little bit easier, but that’s why I’m very pleased for the game today.”
