Guardiola fires title warning: Of course United can still win

City are on a run of three straight defeats and must bounce back at Wembley on Saturday

Guardiola said he wants to celebrate it with their own fans.

"These guys are fantastic and awesome". "[Tottenham] didn't have a game for a week and that's the advantage they had, but the mental toughness of this team is unbelievable". The question in their remaining five games is whether they can break the 100-goal barrier - they now have 93 - and claim 13 points to become the first club in Premier League history to reach 100 in a season.

A loss would see City lose four successive matches for the first time in 12 years.

A long ball from Kyle Walker saw Gabriel Jesus outpace Davinson Sanchez to race in on goal and finish coolly.

With five games to go City, who beat Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, have 87 points to the 71 of second-placed United. The 23-year-old will head to the World Cup on the back of the most prolific season of his career, with a penchant for injury-time winners amid some still erratic finishing.

And Guardiola is clearly taking no chances as he played down City's chances of securing the title sooner rather than later, saying: 'It can happen.

With 33 games played, City have won an impressive 28, with three draws and just two defeats.

"After what happened this week, to come here and play against Tottenham - one of the best teams with one of the best managers by far - and to play how we did in the first half [was impressive]", Guardiola began.

Silva added to a body of work that makes him arguably City's greatest ever while playing through the unenviable hardship of having his prematurely born son lying in intensive care in Valencia.

Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were also on target as Liverpool moved three points above Tottenham.

Saints led 2-0 with 20 minutes remaining through Dusan Tadic and debutant Jan Bednarek.

When it comes to discussing City's most important player this year, Sane probably enters the conversation somewhere below Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Aguero, Fernandinho, Nicolas Otamendi and Ederson.

"We all believed", said Kompany.

"We were able to play at the level that we are expected to perform at, and i think the previous times when we won it a lot of times you can say we almost threw it away".

Crystal Palace had been set to drop into the bottom three on goal difference prior to Chelsea's comeback.

City comprehensively lost the first leg 3-0 at Anfield before the 2-1 reverse at the Etihad six days later.
