Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has expressed his satisfaction at Wednesday night’s 2-0 win at Everton, but knows his team face a potentially exhausting run for the remainder of the season.
The Citizens claimed victory at Goodison Park thanks to a goals in injury time at the end of the first and second halves from Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus respectively.
The result took Guardiola’s side level on 62 points with Liverpool, but City top the log thanks to their superior goal difference.
Speaking to the BBC, Guardiola said: “I am so satisfied, we have a game every three days for three months.
“Gabriel Jesus has scored nine goals in a short time and Sergio got three at the weekend, it is important to have two good strikers.
“I don’t know how far we will get, maybe we will die in the road, but we are trying.
“We have played one more game than Liverpool, it’s good to be top but Liverpool has a game at Old Trafford.”
City are in control of the title race and Guardiola admits that his team’s situation could have been far different.
“I don’t think too much about it but four or five days ago we could have been seven points behind, it is a lesson to never give up,” he explained.
“We have an incredible test on Sunday against Chelsea.”
