Pep Guardiola accepts it is impossible to overtake Liverpool

Pep Guardiola’s side are back to winning ways after their defeat against Manchester United in the Premier League. Since the Manchester derby defeat, City have played four games, winning all of it. They've defeated the likes of Leicester City and Arsenal. Manchester City are currently placed third in the table with 38 points, trailing one point behind Leicester City. They are 11 points adrift of league leaders Liverpool, with Liverpool yet to play a game. On being questioned about chasing Liverpool in the Premier League, Guardiola stated that when a team has 16 victories from 17 games, it is unrealistic to think that they were going to chase them. He accepted that chasing Jurgen Klopp’s men was unrealistic right now. However, they had to try to win their games and secure a Champions League spot for next season.
