Josep Guardiola rooting for Leicester against Liverpool, but do not think that it is possible for the City to win the league.
Manchester City delivered a strong performance, as the team on Saturday at home to beat Leicester 3-1 in the Premier League.
despite This, there is much for the City up to Liverpool in the first place. While Leicester City have respectively 39 and 38 points for 18 matches, is Liverpool clearly in the lead with 49 points on 17 matches.
the City in the first place, hoping that the Leicester sticks a spoke in the wheel at Liverpool when the league's top two teams clashing 26. december.
It makes at least manager Josep Guardiola.
- I have to hope that Leicester are doing the job against Liverpool in the next match, but we have also an extremely difficult game away to Wolverhampton, says Josep Guardiola.
He has, however, not the great expectations that his team can win the championship for the third season in a row.
- It is unrealistic to believe that we can get a team which has won 60 of the last 70 matches.
- If Liverpool lose a few matches, and at the same time we win it is never what happens, but I'm not very optimistic. I don't think that they are going to lose four-five games out of the next 10-12 matches, for the team is incredible strong.
the City looks at least to be sure to finish in the top-4, which triggers a place in the Champions League in the next season.
As the number four and five follows right now Chelsea and Sheffield United, respectively, with 32 and 28 points. The next big clubs in the table are Tottenham and Manchester United with 26 and 25 points.
- We must continue to play like against Leicester to win matches, and so we must ensure that we qualify for the Champions League, says Guardiola.
While the other nine matches in 19. round run 26. december,, City first the play against Wolverhampton the following day.
