Guardiola has warned his team that a collapse could still occur at this stage, but something catastrophic is needed to prevent City from becoming the champion in May.

Not so clear is whether the Champions League trophies will line up side by side, and Guardiola will give the player the error he saw against Southampton if he wanted to advance to the final in Istanbul on May 29th. I want you to eliminate it.

“In the first 20 or 25 minutes, they were the best team we faced here,” Guardiola said.

“Only respect and admiration for Ralph Hasenhuttle’s team. We had a lot of pain in controlling them. They were great. The second half was much better, using holding a midfielder, I became more patient.

“We had a throw against West Ham and it ended with a goal. Same on Sunday against United. Kyle [Walker] I did the wrong thing and it was a corner and then a penalty [against Southampton]..favorite Gabriel [Jesus] [against United].. If you don’t improve this, you won’t be able to win the knockout tournament.

“The first goal we acknowledged was what we gave them, and we hope we can learn about knockout games. Otherwise, we’ll be out.”

Guardiola never lost his home game in a row as a manager and wasn’t trying to start by seeing the Premier League trophies after Derby’s disappointment. Kevin De Bruyne And Riyad Mahrez Both scored twice and Ilkay Gundoan Citi has been added to his impressive tally of 12 league goals this season when it’s back on track. But it wasn’t a strange, horrifying night.

Southampton was a better team until the first goal was scored 15 minutes later and was at 1-1 level thanks to most of the first half. James Ward-ProwsPenalty. Che Adams He threatened to play the game temporarily at 4-2 in the 56th minute, but Southampton’s final sniff ended with a second De Bruyne the night three minutes later.

The scoreline could have been more comfortable if referees Jon Moss and VAR Andrew Madley hadn’t made a mysterious decision. Alex McCarthyScything challenge Phil Foden It wasn’t worth the penalty. “It’s just unbelievable that no penalty was given,” Guardiola said.

“I won 5-2, but it was 1-1 at the time. Someday they will explain why. I don’t know. It’s unbelievable that I won everything in four and a half years. Nobody He didn’t give us anything. Penalty, what a hell. “

Aside from the referee’s decision, Guardiola is worried about the ease with which Southampton is close to the goal, and Hasenhüttle will feel that his team should have done well with 11 and 6 shots. ..

After doing it for more than three months without recognizing two goals in the game, City did it twice in four days. They are still comfortably the best defense of the league, but it suddenly becomes four games without a clean sheet. They also scored more than anyone else and passed 60 league goals this season, thanks to great offensive football.

If Citi finishes the season with more than a title, it’s encouraging to see their best player De Bruyne play a big role and Guardiola to see the Belgians score their first Premier League goal since January. It was that. A sloppy display with no features for United.

“They sometimes afflicted us. In general, it was good. Another victory and we move on Fulham“Gardiola said.

“Southampton put a lot of players in the middle and it became very difficult for us. They published a lot that allowed us to compete. The quality of our players wins the game. Was-Riyadh, Kevin, Phil [Foden]..

“It’s important for Kevin and Riyadh to score goals. We need goals. Now we’re resting, then Fulham. One game at a time. There are nine games left. Games like today are very difficult and difficult.

“I won because of the quality of the players on the pitch.”

Citi’s team talents, especially those like De Bruyne and Mahrez, mean they will almost certainly win the title, but if you also want to add the Champions League, pay attention to Guardiola’s advice and eliminate mistakes. need to do it.
