Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said his players should have no regrets, if they fail to clinch the Premier League title this season ahead of Liverpool.
Guardiola, speaking with Sky Sports, explained his team is currently producing “much, much better” football than during last season’s record-breaking title success.
City are marginal favourites to retain their crown, after Saturday’s commanding 1-0 win at Bournemouth and Sunday’s goalless Merseyside derby left them a point ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s Reds with nine matches to be played.
“In the way we play, we play much, much better [than last season].
“Everybody knows exactly what we have to do, everybody helps each other. And when this happens, we can compete and if we lose, we lose, but no regrets.
“I know in our society just the first one has the credit and the second one is an absolute loser.
“But it is impossible to feel that about my players, it’s impossible.
“I don’t know what is going to happen but it is impossible to feel they are not good competitors, good players, good athletes, good everything seeing what we have seen this season,” Guardiola said.
