What Guardiola said after City 1-0 win over Spurs.
Manchester City boss, Josep Guardiola has rained praises on his team for their show of resilience with a 1-0 win over a side that marred their dream for four titles this season.
Man City fell-off the Champions League race on away goal advantage to spurs despite defeating Pochettino’s side 4-3 at Etihad last Tuesday.
When encountered in their Premier League fixture on Saturday, Guardiola’s men fought back to ensure it doesn’t repeat and the former Barcelona boss said he wouldn’t have done that on his power alone;
”The last two days have been really tough for us,
‘We could have lost the Premier League today after Wednesday it was really tough. As a footballer, I could not have done what my players have done today. The title is still in our hands.
‘I told my players that if they had forgotten what happened it’s good but if it still hurts then it’s good,” he said.
‘Both teams have incredible players with heart and personality. It was a real tough game after our mental defeat on Wednesday,” said the Spaniard.
‘It was our not best performance, compared to the other day but today they had nothing to lose and we played to not lose the Premier League and after our defeat last Wednesday it was really tough the last two days.
‘Even if we don’t do it, we’ve been on a remarkable run; every day with this club and these players. It doesn’t matter what happens next; we’ll fight until the end –- we’ll see how far we get.
‘Twenty-four months doing that, when you have 100 points and 86 now after what we have done last season, being in the final of the FA Cup, the team was incredible this season and that’s why they don’t have to show me their character.
‘This is one of the best Liverpool sides ever, one of the best sides I ever play against and every three days being there, being there, being there, it is remarkable. I want to win it but I will not judge them if we don’t, he said.
