EPL: Guardiola reveals how many points Man City need to win title

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said his team needs 10 more wins, to be crowned Premier League champions.

Guardiola stated this while speaking to reporters, following their 3-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday. Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick, as City put behind their 4-3 defeat at Anfield last weekend.

It also extended the Citizens’ unbeaten run at home to 23 league games.

City are now on 65 points from 24 games with 14 games left to play.

“We need 10 more wins to be champions, and we’ll try for more points. We face these kind of teams – Southampton, West Ham, Bournemouth, who play with the 5-4-1, that’s why it’s so important to attack this kind of team,” Guardiola told BBC Sport.

“We avoided two bad results in a row. We dropped two points against Palace and got it back against Watford.

“When you lose against Liverpool, you can shake hands with Jurgen Klopp and move on. The way we fought and the way we tried to play when they defended with many players in the box, that’s why it is so good.

“We were able to make a good combination in attack. I’m so satisfied. You always have doubts after the Liverpool loss as to how we react.

“It’s not how many goals you score, it’s how many chances you create, it’s how many chances your keeper has to save. It was important how we reacted at 2-1, we didn’t panic.”
