Pep Guardiola on Manchester City's nervy win over Tottenham

20 Apr 2019, 17:15

Pep Guardiola says he enjoyed Manchester City's narrow 1-0 home win over Tottenham on Saturday that saw the defending champions reclaim their spot at the top of the Premier League table

Phil Foden's fifth-minute strike was enough to hand City all three points as the battle for the title with Liverpool goes down to the wire.  

"It was not our best performance comparing the other day, but today they played with nothing to lose and we play to lose the Premier League," he told Sky Sports after the match. 

"And after our defeat last Wednesday it was really tough, the last two days, but I like it being tough.

"We started incredibly well. Tottenham is an incredible team, but we are there, with 86 points after 100 last season, it is one of the most remarkable things in my career.

"Especially after 100 points, with the best Liverpool ever, one of the best sides I ever played (against) and every three days being there, being there, being there - it is remarkable.

"I want to win it, but I will not judge if not. Tottenham is going to finish top four with the games they have, three at home, so they didn't have the pressure we had, so what we have done is massive."
