Man City boss Guardiola: These players will throw everything at winning title

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has no doubts about the attitude of his players going into the final games of the season.

After watching Jarrod Bowen fire West Ham to a two-goal half-time lead, City staged a battling second half comeback to secure a point courtesy of Jack Grealish's deflected effort and a Vladimir Coufal own goal.

Riyad Mahrez missed a glorious late opportunity from the spot to secure all three points for City, a result that would have seen Guardiola's men put one hand on the Premier League title.

Guardiola, whose side face Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard's Aston Villa in their final game, said: "Now there are no debates about goal difference or anything. We need to win our game to be champion.

"If we don't win, Liverpool will be champions.

"I can assure you something: in one week our stadium will be sold out and we will give them all of our lives over 95 minutes and they will give us their lives.

"It is an incredible privilege to have the chance with our people at home to win one game to be champion. I'm looking forward to it.

"We are going to rest for one or two days, mentally disconnect, and then train three or four days to prepare the game against Aston Villa."

Guardiola added: "They have the desire to win. To win titles, especially the Premier League, is not just how good we are with the ball.

"It is so important but there are many other aspects that are important to win."
