Last night the Manchester City side thrashed the bottom side Hull City by 3-0, and the Spaniard coach Guardiola thinks that Manchester City has no margin for error in the premier league.
On Boxing Day the Chelsea side won their 12th game on the EPL and after that City cannot afford to drop points to be on the premier league race.
Last night they managed to win the match and they scored three goals in the last 18 minutes.
Thanks to Yaya Toure, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Curtis Davies scored an own goal in the last minutes.
After the win against Hull City Manchester City jumps to the second spot on the table but still they are seven points behind form the Chelsea side.
Guardiola voiced: "Sometimes you play before [Chelsea], sometimes later – but it doesn't matter when one team has won 12 in a row. It's like a final for us if you want to be there until the end of the season."
The Manchester City coach believes that the Chelsea and Liverpool have a god chance to win the premier league because they are not participating in any European competition this season but he is adamant to make a strong charge.
He added: "Liverpool went so close one year because they had one game a week and last year, for Leicester, it happened the same.
"This time Chelsea and Liverpool are the ones. We have played seven more than them – and important games like the Champions League – which is why it will be tough.
"But football is unpredictable. We have to do absolutely everything to be there. Sometimes when you believe something is done it isn't.
"What we have to do is win every game and analyse and see if that is enough.”
Last night the Manchester City dominated the match from the beginning but unable to score a goal but in the 72 nd minute the Ivorian international scores the first goal for them.
Few days earlier the coach says that he is more focus on playing his way rather than the results but it he change his tone.
He added: "We forgot in the first half that the goal was there, especially the wingers. It was pass pass pass.
"But in the second [Raheem] Sterling got to the byline, he created the penalty and created the third goal. The winger has to be aggressive.
"In the first bit of second half we were lucky because Bacary [Sagna] saved a goal, but the second goal helped us a lot and in the end we finished with another counter-attack.
"I am happy to win again, especially away here in Hull. I enjoyed it."
