Pep Guardiola has recently suggested that Liverpool have had it easier than Manchester City in this season’s Premier League title race, as reported by the Metro.
The two clubs are locked in what is arguably the most fierce battle for glory the competition has since in recent years, but Pep thinks the Reds have been given an easy ride,
Never mind that we both have to play the same teams throughout the campaign, Jurgen Klopp has rubbished suggestions that expectation is weighing down on City and not us.
“It didn’t feel too easy to be honest but we didn’t feel the pressure too much,” he’s quoted as saying by the Express. “We decided to see it as an opportunity to win the games.
“About the situation of being in the lead and stuff like that, unfortunately I was not too often in the lead in my life that I could talk too much about it.
“The situation was like it was. All respect for City for what they’ve done this season. I don’t know who had more pressure or whatever, both delivered and here we are.”
City totted up 100 points last season and they’re on course to collect 98 this year – it’s incredible to consider a team has picked up near-enough 200 points in two years.
That’s our competition – we’ve lost just once all season and are piling the pressure on City in the closing stages of the Premier League season.
Suggestions that it’s been easy for Klopp’s men is ridiculous. City were probably expected to keep the title with no worries by many, and we’ve turned up to spoil the party.
You can’t just walk every single domestic competition you play in, Pep.
