Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said that his side’s 1-0 Premier League win against champions Chelsea on Sunday at the Etihad was very important to their quest of winning the league title this season.
Chelsea conceded early in the second half, thanks to Bernardo Silva who finished off David Silva’s squared pass to earn the three points for City.
With the win, City are now on 78, with an 18 points difference from second-placed Liverpool.
Guardiola told post-match conference, “It was so important, a win today is another step closer.
“We need four victories to be champions, it is in our hands and if our behaviour is like today we will be champions.
“Against a strong team like Chelsea, who are still the champions, and beat them in the way we did today, that is why it is so good.
“I never judge what the other guy does. Who can forget the same manager and almost same players were champions last year.“
“Our performance today was so good in terms of control and attacking at the right moment. Everybody was good.”
