Pep: City Must Forget United Defeat, We Deserved To Be Awarded Penalties

City paid for their lack of ruthlessness in front of goal when United scored three times in the second half to dash the Citizens' hopes of lifting the title on Saturday.

"If that's so I will have to recognise that I'm not good enough or the way we want to play (means we are) not able to do that - but I don't think so because of what we've done this season. I've dropped a lot of Champions League games in the space of 10 or 15 minutes", he said, offering an example of when he was Bayern Munich manager for a Champions League semi-final first leg in May 2015.

"We have to win two more games and after the game on Tuesday we are going to focus on the Premier League to try as quick as possible to get it".

"When we were on the bus I was reading about how the reception was going to be", ESPN Brasil quotes him as saying. The two games that had already been played in the Premier League featured plenty of goals as Manchester City put five past a ten-men Liverpool to comprehensively win at the Etihad.

However, City's tendency to pay heavily for momentary lapses in concentration is a recurring theme of Guardiola's career.

"There's a feeling of sadness and disappointment but we must turn the page as soon as possible because we have another big challenge on Tuesday", he said.

"We need the support because we are so exhausted (and) because United rest all week". Some penalties in the first half, some in the second half but we have to improve. The first half the game was nearly won we were nearly there, in 10 minutes they recovered.

"If it happened twice, nobody would have said anything", Hamann told Sky Deutschland. "We have training this afternoon and we will see Sergio Aguero's physical condition".

In ordinary circumstances, Guardiola would not even entertain the idea of deploying anything other than his strongest team to secure his first league title in England, and keep City on course for a record points haul.

"We are going to pick the team to win tomorrow, there is no doubt about that".

"Until the end we try it and we had the chances and some positions and unfortunately we could not win".

"When you analyse the game, it was good, so I can not expect 30 minutes and the opponent doesn't do absolutely anything".
