Guardiola fears Man City could still falter in title race

Not that it's a big deal or anything - but Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola won't be watching the match that could affirm City as this year's Premier League Champions.

The first time you lose it you never think you're going.

No side has ever been crowned champions with more games to spare in England and they could add more records before the season is out, alongside their league-best winning run of 18 matches that spanned August to December previous year.

The City captain has now won three league titles with the club and says it's just as special to win it again.

"Everything was complicated, they couldn't play simple, everything was one more touch, one more flick, one more turn, the ball lost".

In the Champions League, he has managed 8 total appearances, scoring an impressive 3 goals. At City, Guardiola can pursue his vision unchecked, potentially making the rumoured contract extension beyond next season all the more appealing. Failing that, Mourinho's side would have to avoid defeat at Bournemouth on Wednesday to make City need to win at home to Swansea next Sunday to confirm the title. It's robust. The Premier League is so, so robust, that's the reason hopefully on Sunday if we win, it'll stay in our hearts for the remainder of our lives.

"So we have six games".

The buildup to the game was dominated by how City would cope without striker Aguero, who had fractured ribs in a auto crash in Amsterdam shortly before the game at Stamford Bridge. Today, we've done it many, many times, and that's why we're in the position we are. "We don't depend on anyone else, and that's a good advantage", said Guardiola.

Ederson's unconventional but reassuring presence has underpinned the Premier League's most miserly defence, one led by Otamendi - the most remarkable transformation of them all.

UEFA, on its part, will not be fast-tracking VAR for Champions League or Europa League next season.

City are 16 points clear atop the table ahead of United's clash with WBA at Old Trafford.

That streak was kept alive as Sterling also struck late twice in three days in late November to edge out Huddersfield and Southampton 2-1 to demoralise the chasing pack.

Premier League decided against using the technology after the shareholders meeting on Friday.
