Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola admitted that title race is over for his team after tonight’s defeat at Stamford Bridge:
“Today the Premier League has gone,” he said after the game.
“It’s between Chelsea and Tottenham now. Now we have to think about qualifying for the Champions League and finishing in the top four.
“Were we the better side? Absolutely. But they got six points against us [over the two games], and we got zero. And football is about results. But the way we played, I was happier today with the way we played at Arsenal on Sunday – and we got a point less.
“It’s encouraging for the future. I’m optimistic. It’s been like this all season but in the boxes we are not good enough. We created enough to score goals. It’s our problem. But my players play in one way and that’s why I want to be here – to help Man City for years.
“The people who are watching us must be proud of our fans. We did everything.”
