Football news-thinking about title is a mistake- Guardiola


Football News

The Spaniard tactician has urged to his players not to think about the silverware at this moment as he believes that it will distract their performance.

In this Sunday Manchester City’s juggernaut has been stopped against Crystal Palace, where the match ends as a goalless draw between both the sides.

In that match, Manchester City also gets a huge blow with the injury of Gabriel Jesus and Manchester City confirms that he will be out of action for two months and also in the second half the Belgium international Kevin De Bruyne also picked up an injury and will be sidelined for few weeks.

Today Manchester City will play against Watford and though they dropped their points against Crystal Palace, though still, they are the favorites to claim this season’s EPL silverware.

Guardiola thinks now his players should only focus on winning their next matches and not about winning the trophies.

He added: "Of course, we are in a good position and I have said to my players many times: 'don't think about winning the title, focus on the next game'.


"If you think about far away we are going to distract what we have to do today and that will be a big mistake.

"In football, everything can happen. We can get a lot of wins in a row, we can stay a lot of games without winning.


"That has happened in the past with many other teams.


"We just have to focus on what we have to do and correct our mistakes from today and keep going.

"I have the same feeling that before I came here and now when we dropped two points.


"I have a lot of experience with that. When you see the fixtures, the stages you have to go and the five big contenders.


"Games like here, Stoke City and Burnley. A lot of games to play.


"There will be still a lot of things to do."
