Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has aimed to find out how many times he has won the Premier League against Liverpool.
While the Spaniard admitted that the Reds had an “amazing history” in the Champions League, he claimed that everyone in England wanted Jurgen Klopp’s side to win the title because of the history they share with Manchester United.
“A week ago, no one was there… We were up front, everyone in this country supports Liverpool, the media and everyone. Of course, because Liverpool has an incredible history in Europe, not in the Premier League, because they have won only once in 30 years, But it is not a problem at all,” Guardiola was quoted by Athletic newspaper.
Pressed to explain his claims that people wanted the Reds to win the title, Guardiola added:
“Liverpool along with United are the most important teams in terms of legacy, history and drama. But in the last 11-12 years we have always been there. I know we sometimes feel uncomfortable, but I don’t care. If people want Liverpool to win more than us, that’s not the problem. . it’s normal.”
City currently have a three-point lead over the Reds at the table with three games remaining.
