EPL: Liverpool Under Pressure As Man City Takes Top Spot
A string of uninspiring results has finally caught up with Liverpool as Manchester City have overtaken them at the summit of the Premier League standings.
Pep Guardiola’s men climbed to the top spot on goals difference albeit with a game more after they beat Everton 2-0 at the Goodison Park.
The Reds can return to the summit when they entertain Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon but Guardiola is pleased with the situation now; adding that City has proved not to give up in any situation.
“It is much better to be top, but we've played one more game,” said the Catalan. “It's the best we can do.
“The reality is we would have been one month ago 10 points behind, a few days ago we could be seven points behind. Now we are top of the league.
“That is best advice, the lesson is never give up. That is the lesson to all athletes. Try to win the games, because life can change immediately.
“We come from 100 points, we come from (being) champions and we are in a situation where we could have given up but it didn’t happen.
“We gave an incredible game against Liverpool. These players have shown incredible desire and performances for the last two years. How could I question them?”
Asked if his side being top has increased the pressure on Liverpool, Guardiola said: “That is a question for them. They have to play the game at Old Trafford, we will see.
“We are leaders but we have (played) one more game. There are 12 games to play, a lot of points.
“We are going to drop points, hopefully as few as possible, and they are going to drop points.
“Nobody is going to win all of their games.”
