Premier League: Pep Guardiola not thinking about the title


Despite having won 10 consecutive matches since taking charge at Manchester City, manager Pep Guardiola says he is not thinking about the Premier League title yet. Instead he tries to focus on winning every game at a time. The Citizens have won all six Premier League fixtures so far and built up a four-point lead at the top of the table over second-placed Tottenham.

"I didn't think about what might happen at the start of the season," Guardiola said after Saturday's 3-1 win at Swansea City. "We just focused on pre-season, and then we took a lot of confidence from our Champions League qualifying games, and then it's been game by game. Now we are thinking of Celtic, and then it will be Tottenham and that's how we'll go forward. And at the end of the season, we will see how our levels were and whether we were better than our rivals or not."

City forward Raheem Sterling seems to agree with his manager: "We have to just keep humble and keep working hard. We have to remind ourselves it is only September - the season has a lot left in it. We have to take it game by game. I know that sounds boring, but that's the way it is. It is early to say what we are going to be doing, but we want to be champions. We are gunning for titles, and we need to keep our heads down and keep going step by step."

Manchester City are 8/13 at Bet365 to win the Premier League title this season.

    Thinking or not it's what people discuss after having only wins since the start of the season.
    I understand Guardiola wants to be concentrated just on the next game not wanting to look too further ahead in time than the next few games but they are definitely the N1 title contenders and I'm not sure there will be title race at all if City continue winning like this.
