Despite Manchester City’s recent defensive struggles against Spurs, Pep Guardiola remains confident that his team will clinch a fourth consecutive Premier League title.
Despite conceding eight goals in their last few league matches against Liverpool, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur, Guardiola believes his side has the capability to secure another title.
In their recent match against Tottenham, City failed to hold onto their lead twice, leading to a 3-3 draw.
Speaking in a pre-match press conference, Guardiola said: “If you ask me today, my feeling is that we’re going to win the Premier League. If we play at the levels that we showed against Liverpool and Tottenham, we’re going to do it again – knowing that it is not easy of course.”
Additionally, Guardiola hinted that midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who is currently out of favor and rumored to be leaving the club in January, might feature in their upcoming league clash against Aston Villa on Wednesday.
On the midfielder’s chance of playing the match, the former Barcelona coach said: “There’s a chance [for Kalvin Phillips to play against Villa]. Today, I have to see training in the afternoon and see how the players are and feel. The decision will be made tomorrow.”
