Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, after a shocking defeat at the hand of Norwich City, jokingly said, "Congratulations, Liverpool, you are the champions." Pep Guardiola's statement has aroused a lot of emotions among the fans of the Premier League. This comes after Manchester City witnessed a 2-3 defeat against Tottenham and Liverpool thrashed Newcastle by 3-1, in the Premier League on Saturday. Post this game Liverpool is placed on the top of the points table with 15 points as they have won all their five matches so far in the tournament. On the other hand, Manchester City stands at the second spot with 10 points. 

Pep Guardiola's comments 

Guardiola said, "We're in September... we're going to do that? Okay: congratulations, Liverpool, you are the champions. We're in September! We'll recover, go to Ukraine, then we come back."  Manchester City has won three matches and drew against Tottenham before suffering their first defeat. Pep Guardiola added, "Of course, we've dropped five points. Tottenham was a pity because we played very well. Against Norwich, it was in the important parts, in set pieces for example, that the players have to know exactly what to do." Despite the earlier joke, Pep Guardiola added that they are going to fight until the end. He said, "In the changing room, I speak with them and at the same time I know the commitment in every single training session and in all they do. We are going to keep going every time until the end."
