Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes that Liverpool has a lifeline in the title race after their draw on Sunday.
Both sides played to an entertaining 2-2 draw with the clubs just separated by one point with seven games to go and according to Spaniard, they will have to win all their remaining games if they are to retain their title.
“We know now that one game and a dropped result, then we will not be champions. Will it be easy? Absolutely not but it will be difficult for them too.
🗣️ “We performed really really well! I’m incredibly proud!”
🗣️ “Liverpool are a joy to watch”

“Seven games in the Premier League is a lot (to win) – they are tough games and they have tough games. I don’t know what will happen but the way we performed throughout the season and against this team to perform the way they did – I am proud. I wanted to win but it doesn’t matter. It was so good,” Guardiola said.
Goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus were canceled out by Diogo Jota and Sadio Mané at the Etihad Stadium as City overran Liverpool in the first half before the visitors rallied impressively after the break.
