Premier League Man City players like to play under pressure – Guardiola on title race

Pep Guardiola said his Manchester City players relish the pressure of a Premier League title race.

City are now just two victories from a record fourth successive top-flight trophy after an emphatic 4-0 win at Fulham on Saturday. Josko Gvardiol scored twice at Craven Cottage, with Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez adding goals to seal the three points.

Having gone 21 league games unbeaten, winning each of their last seven, City are in a fine run of form domestically. Now they know that if they can win at Spurs on Tuesday night and in next Sunday’s home game with West Ham, they will again lift the trophy.

I had the feeling they like to play with pressure. Some teams they are used to this, they have incredible personalities,” he said of his own players.

“Manu [Akanji], Ruben [Dias], Kyle [Walker], Eddy, Rodri and Kova[cic]. Phil [Foden]. Players who enjoy playing with that pressure. Otherwise you know that if you don’t play to that level and if you lose the game you lose the Premier League.

“We have known it for many years. Always the same. Don’t think anything other than the next game. See what happens. Go to London, perform well, try to win the game.”
