Pep Guardiola's comments should make Tottenham fans feel very proud

Pep Guardiola's comments should make Tottenham fans feel very proud”

It was fitting that Pep Guardiola chose the eve of the Grand National to claim that his Manchester City team could yet have their own Devon Loch moment and allow Manchester United to pip them to the title.

The defeat was City's third in a week following their failure to clinch the Premier League title in the Manchester derby, and Guardiola's side face a hard game against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday.

The result narrowed the gap to at the top to still what looks like an unassailable 13 point lead, but having also now lost three games in a week (two to Liverpool in the Champions League and and the Manchester Derby), Pep Guardiola is refusing to rule out an end of season collapse, and has used examples from Spanish football and the National Basketball Association to prove his point.

"It can happen", said Guardiola. The pundits said it was impossible for us to drop points but in one week we lost three games. "We can not forget he was one month injured".

"Now we have in front of us the most important title of the season by far and we need five points in six games". We have to handle that. You have to learn that because at the end if we were not able to do it and United win the league, all we can say is "congratulations" to United, reflect on what we have done badly in the last month and move forward. Real Madrid, years ago, lost six games and didn't win the league. Of course it can happen, no doubts about that. "I don't know about Swansea if he will be ready, so hopefully for the last games if we need him and then for the World Cup". One year ago Cavaliers won 4-3 against Golden State Warriors, winning three games in a row. "We don't depend on anyone else, and that's a good advantage", said Guardiola. If we lose it will be in the same way we tried to play against United and Liverpool.

Mexico starts giving caravan migrants transit visas
Late Tuesday, the first migrants began receiving documents from Mexican immigration authorities. Mujica said that "a minimum of 80 percent" of the migrants in the group come from Honduras.

"When the opponent is good, we will congratulate our opponents on beating us, and after learn from that for the next game". There are six games and 18 points left to play for this term, while second-placed United trail City by 13 points.

The Red Devils used the action as a payback to replicate what the Citizens did to them in the reverse fixture won by Pep Guardiola's side last December.

"My feeling is now that United will win a lot of points because they are in a good shape and have top players".

Guardiola had to watch the second half from the directors' box as City slipped to a 5-1 aggregate defeat, and now faces a touchline ban in Europe next season when his case his heard by a UEFA disciplinary panel on May 31.

A side containing Ronaldo, Raul, Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and David Beckham looked on course for a treble of Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey going into March.
