Guardiola backs Man City for glory

Despite City's recent struggles in the Premier League, Guardiola is still confident his side will bounce back and reclaim the title at the end of the season.

Speaking ahead of the Citizens' clash with Aston Villa on Wednesday night, the tactician exuded confidence in his side to wither the current storm.

"But my feeling today is we're going to win the Premier League. People don't believe it already, after three draws, but we feel we're going to do it again - knowing that it is not easy because no team has done it yet [won four in a row]," Pep said via The Mirror.
"The difficulty is there and was last season, but if you ask me today what I'm feeling, we're going to do it again," he added.

Pep sends plea to City fans

Sports Brief also previously reported on Guardiola sending Manchester City fans a heartfelt plea following their latest setback in the Premier League.

He reminded the fans of all they have won before, including their historic treble last season, urging them to stick with the team through thick and thin.
