Pep Guardiola made intriguing statements during the press conference ahead of the match against Aston Villa. Despite Manchester City having three consecutive draws and being out of top form, the Spanish expert believes his team will win the Premier League title.

This will surely motivate the players significantly before this crucial match. Aston Villa is currently in excellent form and faces a very challenging task!
‘I never use these situations – the motivation is just to try to do better, that is it.

I have learned that if you want to win something, you have to do it much better than your opponents. When you are level, that is not always going to happen (winning) so you have to do it much, much better – and this is what they have to do.'

- he said, as quoted by METRO! No team has managed to win 4 Premier League titles in a row so far. Manchester City will have a chance for such a feat. It will be a difficult task, especially watching the performances of Arsenal and Liverpool.

‘My feeling today is we are going to win the Premier League – if we play at the levels we did against Liverpool and Tottenham, we are going to win it again. People don’t believe it after three draws but we are going to do it again.

We know that it is not easy [winning four Premier League titles in a row], no team has done it yet, and that is why the difficulty is there.'
