Pep Guardiola: 'Premier League tougher to win than Champions League'

This is not a dynasty Kompany sets sights on consecutive title

Guardiola's side need just five points to secure the Premier League title, and while victory over Spurs will not be enough on its own, another win over Swansea on April 22 will secure be.

Not only that but he did it with five games remaining, equalling the English top-flight record of United (1907-08 and 2000-01) and Everton (1984-85).

"Apart from Bayern Munich, the three teams in the semifinals of the Champions League - Roma is 20 points behind Juventus, Liverpool is 17 points behind us plus one more game, Real Madrid is 15 points behind Barcelona".

Asked if he was frustrated because City won the title on the back of United's loss, the Portuguese said, "I have won titles, I would not be happy if someone said I won title because someone lost a match".

Guardiola might not have seen Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute winning goal at Old Trafford because he was due to be playing golf with his son instead of watching the match. [In 2016], never before, in the National Basketball Association finals, one team recovered from 3-1 down.

They were trying to overturn a three-goal first-leg deficit and were level at 1-1 in the return game when the striker was introduced, but lost 2-1.

"I was talking before the game and I was saying the first time you win it you feel you are going to win all of them and the first time you lose it you feel like you are never going to win it again, so you want to hold on to this feeling". They gave a superb response with a swaggering win at fourth placed Tottenham. Everybody will try to improve like we did from last season. It is in our hands.

Guardiola, however, insists this is not something he needs to point out to his players because they have shown no signs of complacency throughout the campaign.


"They [the players] know that".

"It's incredible the way we played and I am so glad to be here and be part of this club", he said on the club's website.

"We have to do it tomorrow".

United's comeback at the Etihad from a 2-0 half-time deficit offered their supporters a rare fillip of flair and excitement after a hard season where their style of play has hardly endeared Jose Mourinho to the club's fanbase.

"We need to win two games. We have handled the pressure, good and bad situations, all season".

Manchester City put some recent disappointments behind them at Wembley Stadium here, rolling past Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 to edge closer to a third English Premier League title.

Speaking at a press conference, Guardiola said: "Since November and December we have already been champions - when I saw pundits and people (say it is) "impossible for City to drop points".

Tottenham pulled one back, however, three minutes before halftime with a little bit of luck.
