Pep Guardiola has claimed that Manchester City will win a fourth consecutive Premier League title, despite their poor defensive showing against Spurs.
The Catalan manager feels his side are still capable of winning the Premier League title for a fourth consecutive season despite a host of defensive errors in their last few league matches.
The reigning champions dropped points in their last three outings in the Premier League against Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, conceding a total of eight goals. They were held to 3-3 draw by Ange Postecoglou’s swashbuckling Spurs side on Sunday as the Cityzens squandered the lead twice in the match.
Speaking in a pre-match press conference, Guardiola said: “If you ask me today, my feeling is that we’re going to win the Premier League. If we play at the levels that we showed against Liverpool and Tottenham, we’re going to do it again – knowing that it is not easy of course.”
The manager also hinted that out-of-favour midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who is being linked with a move away from the club in January, could play a part in their upcoming league clash against Aston Villa on Wednesday.

On the midfielder’s chance of playing the match, the former Barcelona coach said: “There’s a chance [for Kalvin Phillips to play against Villa]. Today, I have to see training in the afternoon and see how the players are and feel. The decision will be made tomorrow.”
