Man City boss Pep Guardiola: Be positive; fight until the end

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists the title race isn't over after defeat at Liverpool on Sunday.

Liverpool proved more clinical in front of goal, scoring twice inside the first 15 minutes to take an early stranglehold on the game.

And although Bernardo Silva's second half strike saw City mount sustained pressure on the Liverpool goal in the last 10 minutes, the visitors were ultimately left frustrated.

“Always be positive and never give up, that's why we won back to back titles," Guardiola declared.

“We want to fight until the end. We dropped points for our faults. For other things we cannot control.

“There is still seven months to go. If Liverpool win title, I will be the first to congratulate them for how good they are.

“We showed many times why we are the champions. There are three teams in front with more chance to be champions.

“We are going to try and in football, you can't always win,

"I'm so proud to see my team play in this stadium against that team that way.

"In this stadium, to play way we played we did incredible... I'm so proud of my team.

“(We faced the) strongest team in Europe and the way we played, we played so good."
