Not the best of excuses.
Knocked down late in the game by Manchester United this Saturday at Old Trafford (2-1), Manchester City are starting to see their title hopes dwindle, while Arsenal are on a torrid pace. Asked after the setback about his chances of winning the championship, Pep Guardiola said he did not have much to do with losing. “I don’t care about the Premier League or the Carabao Cup, we can’t win everything. We have won a lot, so that’s not a problem.” he launched at the microphone of BT Sport.

What matters then? The Champions League? The FA Cup? Not even. “What matters is how we play” , replies the Catalan technician, who has obviously forgotten that the trophy rewarding the team that plays the best does not exist. Besides, the Citizens would be preceded by the Lensois and the Marseillais if such a reward was put in place.
Even that, he no longer earns.
