Chelsea And Manchester United Still In Title Race - Pep Guardiola
Pep Guardiola believes Manchester United and Chelsea are still contenders for the premier League title with 13 games left to play till the end of the season.
The Citizens are three points behind Liverpool at the top of the table but could lead on goal difference if they win their game in midweek.
With Tottenham also closely following and Chelsea 12 off the pace and Manchester United 14 behind in fifth, Guardiola insists any of those teams could still win the title.
Ahead of the game against Everton, which was brought forward because of their Carabao Cup final against Chelsea, Pep said at his press conference:
"I never put out [of the race] all five or six teams and United is making this run of victories every single week. They will be there to fight for the Premier League.
"We see the table and see the first two or three and say, 'they are able to be champions' and we don't look further than that. If Chelsea win games in a row they will be a contender too to win the Premier League.
"Everybody is there. The gap is not too big. With 39 points to play for, nine or 10 points behind is not too much. Seeing the Premier League now, everybody is ready to take points."
"Three or four days ago we were already done, the champs were Liverpool and now we can be leading," Guardiola added.
"We try to be calm. There will be surprises and it will be tough for teams to win every game. Non-contenders have ability to create problems.
"What I'm more concerned is we never forget who we are as a team, doing what we have to do. That's what I want to watch and after we see about the results, the table."
