Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has said his next three games will be go a long way in deciding their season as they pursue a Quadruple.
Manchester City will face Spurs in the CL, trailing 1-0 from the first leg plus two important clashes against the same Tottenham and Manchester United in the EPL.
Anything short of a win in the UCL will lead to an exit and Pep thinks maximum points against the two big side in the EPL will be enough to seal the title for his club.
He said, “If we don’t win these games we will be out of two competitions,”
“They are absolute finals for us, I’ve had that feeling from weeks ago.
“Every time in a competition [they are] when you arrive in the latter stages. We don’t have a 12-point [gap] like last season — in this period, we were already champions.
“But this season we have an incredible opponent like Liverpool in the Premier League. What they have done so far they deserve. Normally with 84 or 86 points you are champion — they have 85. Both teams deserve to be champions but just one team is going to get it.”
“Many times I played in the semifinals and quarterfinals, and every time I played away the atmosphere was really incredible,”
“We need it — really, we need it. I want to see that they want to get to the semifinals. Not the players, the players I have no doubt about after 20 months. I want to see my fans, our fans, that they really want the semifinals. I want to see that tomorrow.”
“I don’t think a lot of things are impossible, that is the mindset of different people and if you don’t dream big then you are not going to get anywhere near it,” he said. “It comes from within everyone — we have this belief and ambition to do it.
“Like last season, 100 points never done before. We won the league quite early and still had the belief to go on and do it.”
