Pep Guardiola says he thought it was “impossible” for Manchester City to be in such a commanding position in the Premier League title race.

City holds a 10-point lead over second-placed Chelsea and can stretch that to 13 points Saturdays with victory over Thomas Tuchel’s side, effectively ending the title race.

Guardiola’s side are on course for a fourth league title in five years, with the Etihad boss admitting he did not foresee his side being in such a comfortable position at this stage.

Despite their big lead and overwhelming status as favourites to retain the title, Guardiola warned his players to remember how quickly situations can change in football.

“If you had told me one month ago we would be in this position, 10 points clear, I would say it was impossible, because I couldn’t expect they would drop those points,” said Guardiola.

“But football changes so quickly. We were 4-0 up at half-time against Leicester, and in 20 minutes it was 4-3. Everything changes so quickly.

“What you have to do is rise and increase our football. Tomorrow we have to do it if we want to compete against Chelsea.

“The fact we are here is because we were consistent in the toughest months – November and especially December – where there are many games.

“It’s also how we overcame the toughest situations that we had in the squad and the problems that we had with injuries and Covid. We got results when we played really good”.

“When we didn’t play well, like at Arsenal, we were still able to win. We were consistent – this is the reason why”.

“Saying that, my opinion of Chelsea and Liverpool doesn’t change for the fact that right now we have this advantage. They are more than excellent teams”.

“One is the champion of Europe, the other has been our biggest rival for four seasons and they maintained their quality.”
