Pep Guardiola is not thinking about what must happen if City are to overturn Liverpool’s 11-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

The boss says he prefers to focus on the next game, rather than to begin plotting the number of successive victories we require and how many defeats Liverpool must suffer if we are to be crowned champions at the end of the season.

“I am not thinking about how many games we have to [win on the] run,” he said after our 2-2 draw with Newcastle United.

“We try to win the next one. Last season, when we were here, we were not talking about the Premier League and how many games we had to win. It’s not about that.

“Now we recover, prepare and try to win at Burnley. That is what we have to do and after for the derby to make these steps.”
