Asked if the 5-0 win against Brighton proves City were unlucky against Southampton, he boss replied: "No, we had many games like this during the season.
"That's why we are 21 points behind Liverpool. We had many games like this. We had Spurs, Norwich when we dropped a lot of points.
"But always you are closer to winning when you have 25 shots. if you do more than the opponent then you are closer to winning the games.
"That's what we;re going to do in the remaining games."
The Catalan also said the FA Cup semi-final with Arsenal next weekend won't affect his team selection against Bournemouth.
"We played one team against Newcastle, today another one," he said.
"A new four or five or six players will play against Bournemouth. Against Arsenal I will select what is best for the team."
