The premiere league chiampions have risen to the top of the table after beating Marco Silva’s men 2-0 at Goodison park on Wednesday.
Mancity travelled to Everton knowing a win will take them above leaders Liverpool on goal difference, Guardiola sees the tussle going through to May and wants his team not to ease up even when victory seems assured in matches.
“I’m pretty sure the winner will be [decided on] the last fixture or in the last two,” he said, while also not ruling out Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester United as title contenders.
“The first message [to the players] is to win the game, and the second one depends on the game – if you can score, score, and if you can avoid to concede, do it, because maybe you [could] win the Premier League on goal difference.”
Pep Guardiola believes that the race for the Premier League title could go down to the wire and has called upon his Manchester city team to earn big wins because goal difference may decide who will be the 2018/19 champions.
Everton were outplayed by Wolves in a 3-1 defeat on Saturday but were much more competitive against Pep Guardiola’s side.
Silva changed formation to 4-3-3 and left out big-money signings Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson but still saw his side concede from another free-kick.
