‘Our Manager!’ ‘This Guy Is The Best’ City Fans Are Loving Guardiola’s Response When Asked About Liverpool’s Five Point Lead

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was not in the mood to talk about the title race following his side’s defeat against Norwich City yesterday evening.

The 3-2 loss means the Citizens have already slipped five points behind Liverpool at the top of the table, but Guardiola sarcastically responded that the Reds should be crowned champions after five games played:

“Five points (behind Liverpool) is five points – but we are in September. What could we do? Say ‘it’s September and congratulations to Liverpool, you are champions?’ We recover and go to Ukraine and try and then come back. We drop five points.”

Fans on Twitter were echoing their manager’s words and praised Guardiola’s calmness following the loss:

Guardiola defended his players after the 3-2 defeat at Carrow Road, and considering his side were on an 18-match unbeaten run, it’s quite understandable that he wasn’t too harsh on the performance.

The City boss’s focus will now be on ensuring they get off to a positive start in their Champions League group. The team’s defending left a lot to be desired against Norwich, though, and they will have to improve when they travel out to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday night.
