Pep Guardiola demands perfection in Manchester City's trophy hunt

MCI vs FUL Live

The Premier League title race is still in City's hands following their 2-0 win away at Fulham on Saturday. Make even one slip in that gruelling run and their whole season could unravel.

The Reds will be looking to boost their title push with a victory when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield for Sunday's Premier League showdown.

More to the point, as the season reaches its business end, Guardiola is blessed by having an nearly entirely fit squad at his disposal.

"This season, the team has been very focused after global breaks, we're very happy to come back fit, nearly the entire squad is available and we are ready for hopefully the next two months to try and win some titles".

"What caught my eye also was that players didn't need to be at their best, but they looked strong, they had Sane on the bench, Stones is fit and on the bench, Fernandinho is fit again - that strength in depth is a formidable weapon for City".

"The players are not stupid, about the fact we're trying something so hard to achieve".

"He says he felt something, but hopefully he's not injured", he said.

I am not telling you anything you probably do not know but speaking with some of my fellow Gooners it is certainly something they are not keeping in mind when they talk about finishing in the top four.

Lakers coach Luke Walton candid on elimination from playoffs
The last time the NBA's best player was not in the postseason was in 2004-05, his second season with the Cleveland Cavaliers . They were officially eliminated from the playoff race following a defeat to the Brooklyn Nets last time out.

It took just five minutes for City to score the opening goal with Bernardo SILVA scoring off a Sergio AGUERO pass.

City's progress means they could play nine games in April but Guardiola does not want to overthink the situation.

"It could be [the toughest game], but people expect the only tough games to be against the top six, but sometimes that's not the case because it's unpredictable", he continued.

"Of course we are more focused on ourselves", Mane told Sky Sports. "Enjoy the moment and dream to win another game".

"Playing every three or four days will be tough", Gundogan said.

"And given how Aguero left the field, it didn't really cause too much of a concern, other than [the fact that] it's Sergio Aguero, who has this injury issue and we've seen season in season out where he's missed far too many games in my opinion and I'm sure any Manchester City fan is concerned".

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial put Solskjaer's men two goals ahead but the Hornets were the better side and United will need to improve in their remaining fixtures as they battle for fourth place.

City boss Guardiola hailed his players' mental strength, tipping them to "go like a machine" in the chase for an unprecedented clean sweep of Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup this term.
