Guardiola names team that will win Premier League title this season

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, asserts that his team is poised to secure a historic fourth consecutive Premier League this season.

They are now in third place, trailing leaders Arsenal by three points following draws with Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham.

Guardiola’s team remains the bookmakers’ favorite for the title despite conceding eight goals and relinquishing leads in each of those matches.

“My feeling today is we’re going to win the Premier League,” said Guardiola. “If we play at the levels that we showed against Liverpool and Tottenham, we’re going to win it again.

“People don’t believe it already after three draws but we feel we’re going to do it again, knowing that it is not easy because no team has done it yet [won four in a row].

“The difficulty is there and was last season but, if you ask me today what I’m feeling, we’re going to do it again.”

City equaled Manchester United’s feat of securing three consecutive Premier League titles by winning the Treble last season.

Despite being eight points behind Arsenal at one point, they ultimately clinched the league with a five-point lead.

In the previous season, City narrowly surpassed Liverpool by a single point, staging a comeback from 2-0 down against Aston Villa on the final day.

They had finished the season before 12 points ahead of Manchester United.

In the recent 3-3 draw with Tottenham, Guardiola’s team expressed frustration over referee Simon Hooper’s decision, but Guardiola believes such incidents won’t be the driving force for his players’ determination throughout the season.

“We never use these kind of situations. Today the motivation is to try and do better,” he said.

“Sometimes decisions help you, sometimes they don’t. I learn that if you want to win something you have to do it much, much better than the opponents.”
