On Sunday, Manchester City Manager, Pep Guardiola, has told his team players to forget about winning the
European Premier League title against United and focus more on the Champions League.
Manchester City is one win away from their first title in four years, after a 3-1 win at Everton in Saturday’s late kick-off.
It means they can hold on the title when Jose Mourinho brings his side to the Etihad Arena next Saturday.
The Boss’ Focus
However, Pep Guardiola will focus on the really crucial quarterfinal first leg away to Liverpool three days beforehand.
“We were a long time without being together, and after three weeks I didn’t want to play with maybe seven, eight or nine players who are going to play on Wednesday to have gone four weeks without playing together. So that’s why we needed to be together to find the pace, to find our rhythm, the way we want to play, for our massive, massive two games against Liverpool.”
“I understand the people are talking about United now but all the decisions I will take is thinking about Liverpool, the game before Manchester United and after United, so that is what it is,” the Spaniard told reporters.
