Time To Question Your Methods, Former Liverpool Star Tells Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola and his team get a hostile reception on the streets of Liverpool

Man City still lead the Premier League by 13 points, but their path to the title is not all plain sailing, as their next six games include Spurs, and five teams battling for survival at the bottom of the table.

Based on Guardiola's success at virtually every level as both a player and a manager, Manchester City felt he was worth securing for at least another year.

The runaway leaders will be desperate to reassert themselves after their chastening 3-0 defeat in the first leg of their Champions league quarter-final at Anfield.

And on his team's 3-0 defeat against Liverpool in the Champions League, the former Barcelona manager said: "Wednesday was a tough result, so hard, but we're going to try". The first half the game was nearly won we were nearly there, in 10 minutes they recovered.

"That is the only way to get anything against Man City and we did it and at the end 3-0 because of our quality, instead of 1-0".

My motivation is to finish second.

Manchester City coach Manuel Estiarte has posted footage of the scenes which greeted the club's players.




Now on 84 points, the leaders are chasing Chelsea's Premier League record tally of 95 points set in 2004-05.

Guardiola suggested that he would keep his options open regarding team selection, but is expected to rotate his squad over the next week. "We're going to try on Tuesday and in the next games".

"But it's OK. It was just a shame that we could not do it in front of our fans". "We have training this afternoon and we will see Sergio Aguero's physical condition". "We are going to pick a team to win the game, there is no doubt about that".

"We are going into it to win it". It happened many times.

City lost at home in the top flight for the first time this season when they were defeated 2-3 in the Manchester derby, a game they should have had wrapped up in the first half. It would be good if you try to understand, that we played good football.

"The result against United will help emotionally to prepare for the game on Tuesday", he said.

For all the inevitability of City's eventual confirmation of their third Premier League title, there was genuine disappointment and frustration from their supporters that it was not achieved with United in opposition.
