- Pep Guardiola has explained that the title race is still very much alive for his side
- Guardiola made this known after Manchester City's Premier League defeat against Newcastle
- City are still occupying second position on the League standings with 56 points after 24 games
Pep Guardiola has insisted that the Premier League title race is still alive for Manchester City despite their defeat against Newcastle United on Tuesday night, January 30.
Manchester City's defeat against Newcastle United has now given leaders Liverpool the chance to extend their lead on the Premier League table if they win their match on Wednesday night.
Argentine striker Sergio Aguero netted the first goal for the Citizens against Newcastle but Salomon Rondon restored parity after the break before Matt Ritchie’s late penalty.
Should Liverpool beat Leicester City on Wednesday night, January 30, then the Reds will go seven points clear on the table which will give them a chance to fight for the Premier League diadem.
“It is a lot of points if we are going to win. But, at the same time, it is January not April or May.
“We have many games and anything can happen. We will try and not give up.
“I love these players. They gave me all the prestige I have here in England, so we are only here to help them.
“We won eight games in a row and scored 30 goals. We conceded one or two and that sometimes happens,'' Guardiola explained according to Sun UK.
Manchester City are currently occupying second position on the Premier League standings with 56 points after 24 games played this season.
