Man City boss Guardiola insists title defence not over

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists their title defence isn't over.

Saturday's draw at Newcastle United leaves City 11 points behind leaders Liverpool.

But asked if an 11-point gap would be too big to bridge, Guardiola replied: “It's not time.

"We have another opponent in front of us, so we now have to try to win games, win games and see what happens.

"I said yesterday at the press conference that it's not a good idea to think about the Premier League or think how many points. We have to win games, win games, win games, and when you don't win, it will be more difficult."
