Pep Guardiola delivers brutal Premier League title snub to Jose Mourinho

Pep Guardiola delivers brutal Premier League title snub to Jose Mourinho

"It's odd because my feeling is the worst feeling I've had in the five years that I've been here".

Following Liveprool's win over Cardiff on Saturday only a win, by any scoreline, for Man City at Wembley will take them back to the summit of the Premier League table given their far superior, and extremely impressive, goal difference.

At the end of a week in which his side conceded a late equaliser against PSV Eindhoven after a moment of madness from his goalkeeper and captain, Hugo Lloris, the Tottenham manager could not help revealing his frustration.

An eye-catching 3-0 win at Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday prompted Guardiola to hail the performance as City's best this season.

City travel to Wembley on Monday night in fine form as they try to replicate a record-breaking 100-point march to the title that saw them easily dismiss Spurs twice last season.

"Alex Ferguson - 25 years in Barcelona [like his time at United], I don't know if this would be possible". We will concentrate on ourselves and that is the most important thing.

"I feel the love from the people here". I know I always have a good relationship with you but my feeling is not the best feeling. It was a bold, fearless endeavour, but anyone who has had any kind of work done on their house - a new conservatory, an extension - knows that it nearly always ends up three times as expensive and takes twice as long, and that's if you're lucky. Coach Julen Lopetegui is under huge pressure at the Bernabeu, with Pochettino reportedly on the list of potential replacements.

Palestinians have been boycotting the Trump administration since it chose to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem earlier this year. "We are not mediators in Israel-Palestine, but we offer facilitation and ideas to help two parties to come together", he added.

Cuts have, nonetheless, had to have been made in other areas of the club, such as marketing and campaigns, and it has annoyed an terrible lot people: Levy, his directors, the contractors having to smash up areas of the stadium they only concreted in a few months ago, Tottenham's fans, opposition fans, rival clubs.

"It was almost 10 years ago and, to be honest, I've improved a lot, I've changed a lot".

Guardiola said his side would "have to adapt" to the condition of the pitch.

"Of course it's easy to see (over) the last few years how we have acted in the market and how others acted". Sometimes people expect that we should be winning or we must win titles when the circumstances are not ideal.

"We went to the arena and after five or six minutes she rang again and said "we are out, we're coming back home".

"I don't have the answer about how we are going to act when we move there [to the new stadium] - that question is not for me".

In the interview Guardiola also discusses the six songs that define his life, we highly recommend you check it out.
