Guardiola: A special day for United, which is a pity

Guardiola: A special day for United, which is a pity

Despite the entire media parade about City potentially winning the Quadruple, this will not be a disappointing season for City who have completely dismantled the entire Premier League and could feasibly win the league on Saturday against Manchester United.

City, now on 84 points in the league table, will be confirmed champions if they beat United who are second on 68 points.

Guardiola's attention will now turn to picking his players up for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Liverpool, where they are faced with the daunting task of overturning a three-goal deficit.

"The club condemns in the strongest possible terms the scenes which preceded our Champions League quarter-final, which resulted in damage being inflicted on the Manchester City team bus during their arrival at Anfield", a statement read. Never. To win 18 games in a row?

Then, with City losing their composure, Chris Smalling was left free to volley home the victor from Alexis Sanchez´s freekick in the 69th minute to seal a memorable win.

"We are going to have training and we are going to see his physical condition".

"Of course we wanted to win today, I'm not going to deny that but we knew exactly we were going to play against, the second in the league". United manager José Mourinho will have had an entire week to get his team fired up and might be able to postpone City celebrations for another week with the aid of his bus.

Newcastle have won just three away games this season against strugglers Swansea, Stoke and West Ham. "It would be wonderful, something different", he said. "You explained about that is going to happen and it happened", said the Catalan coach.

There is something special about Liverpool's Anfield on European nights as it transforms into a swirling cauldron of noise capable of inspiring its hosts and intimidating their foes as Manchester City discovered yesterday.

Belgian midfielder De Bruyne has been their driving force, while David Silva, Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero have all played key roles.

This is a remarkable achievement, especially if one considers how dominating Guardiola's teams (be it Barcelona, Bayern Munich or Manchester City) normally are.

"Everyone expected City to win everything this season - even the Grand National!" said Jones. In the last action it's unbelievable how we didn't score a goal.

"I believe a lot in this team", he said after Wednesday's match.

"We need the support because we are so exhausted (and) because United rest all week. That's what our fans deserve".
