Manchester City’s gaffer Pep Guardiola has doubted city’s Premiership title chances following Sunday night’s loss to Liverpool.
Guardiola admitted that he “does not know” if his Manchester City side can overcome a nine-point deficit and catch leaders Liverpool in the Premier League title race.
Liverpool struck a potentially decisive blow in the Premier League title race as victory over reigning champions Manchester City at Anfield opened up an eight-point lead at the top of the table.
City are aiming to become the first side since Manchester United in 2009 to win three consecutive titles but now sit fourth in the Premier League.
“I am not a magician; I don’t know the future,” Guardiola said.
“We have Chelsea at home next. We will try to beat them.”
