I will be better next season - Guardiola warns City's Premier League rivals


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte insists that the Premier League title race is still open despite his side sitting seven points clear of Tottenham Hotspur.

Conte's men have been in sublime form this season, however Spurs are one of only three teams that can boast about claiming League victories over them.

"The Premier League is gone and now it will be a battle to qualify for the Champions League".

"First of all I think it's better to look at ourselves".

Guardiola said: "Congratulations to Fabian Delph. If you stay in Tottenham, if you win it's great, great, but if you lose.it's not a disaster, no?" You learn about that. We have a slightly superior goal-difference than both, and there's no guarantees they'll pick up consecutive wins, of course.

"We missed two penalties and an amount of chances". They could also end the season with silverware if they win the FA Cup.

"After that in the Everton game, Middlesbrough and these type of games. Against Palace, we played better than in a lot of games that we won this season but we lost so it's just important to get the points no matter how you play".

"We are so polite in our defeats and we are so polite when we win". We created chances but had problems to score.

We can bounce back from anything that comes in front of us.

"The result on Saturday put a lot of pressure on us".

"But it's part of our growth".

Fabregas added: "We've been saying it since the beginning of the season: it's one game at a time". "How many times they shot in our goal? Tottenham's result is important, but our results are the most important things".

David Luiz gave an interview to ESPN Brasil after the match, and said things are perfectly normal between them: "I am fully aware of what I do, of the career I have".

"In [Borussia] Dortmund with Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel he played in a two, but always as a guy who has the ability to arrive in those positions - he is good with the headers, he is good with the last pass".

Given Guardiola's past successes with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, there was a belief at the start of the campaign that City would regain the crown.

The City boss is said to have "flown into a rage" over comments made by Bertelli about his touchline behaviour during the defeat by the Blues.
