Guardiola enthuses: These Man City players amazed me again

Guardiola Pressure will get best out of City

With City firmly in control, Aguero was replaced by Gabriel Jesus after 57 minutes and Guardiola confirmed the switch was made only as a precaution. After the goals we controlled it.

For manager Pep Guardiola, the lunchtime stroll at Craven Cottage, featuring the return of key players like Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho after injury, felt like the most ideal resumption with the pressure immediately restored on Liverpool.

Liverpool can regain pole position in the table if they beat Tottenham at Anfield today, but City have a game in hand and will definitely be crowned champions for a second successive season if they win their last seven matches.

Guardiola's side are a point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the league with seven games to play.

"We are trying to achieve something that is very hard to achieve", said Guardiola after another three points had been safely banked with a 2-0 victory at Craven Cottage.

And now with just a couple of games to go, Liverpool are still fighting tooth and nail in order to end their barren run in the league but Man City always seem to have the answers to the hard question. This is the moment all players want to live. What Liverpool and Manchester City have done in the Premier League both deserve credit. We can not win the Premier League without changing.' Scott Parker, Fulham's interim manager, would not be surprised to see City end the season with four trophies.

"I think we can reach the top four even if we are not able to win eight matches in a row".

However, Guardiola believes his side need to win all of their remaining games to be champions again. Now, Liverpool are pushing them all the way for the title and there is a chance these teams could meet in the Champions League final. "We have tough opponents, but that is the challenge", he added.

"And given how Aguero left the field, it didn't really cause too much of a concern, other than [the fact that] it's Sergio Aguero, who has this injury issue and we've seen season in season out where he's missed far too many games in my opinion and I'm sure any Manchester City fan is concerned".

Fulham is 13 points from safety with 18 points to play for. That group is still lauded for going a whole league season unbeaten, but we felt we had underachieved.

With seven games remaining before the end of the season, the Senegal worldwide said that he keeps a close eye on the Citizens' matches and hopes they drop points for his team's advantage. They showed me the focus.
