Man City boss Guardiola: We must keep heat on Liverpool

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has told Liverpool they'll keep up the pressure as they target a third successive Premier league title.

City earned a hard-fought 3-1 win away to Everton after league leaders Liverpool beat Sheffield United to keep up their 100% record.

"We knew Liverpool won again and the gap was eight points, so big," the City boss said.

"So we won three points and it's five in September, with a lot of points to play for.

"We know which team we're playing [in the title race] right now, they are seven victories in a row, champions of Europe and playing good football.

"This is our rival and we know we can't drop too many points because last season they lost just one game.

"The season is long, we have to keep going and be there, maybe we can push them a little bit more and try to make the third Premier League in a row."
