Pep Guardiola urges side to stay calm.

Man City will retain the title if they win their remaining league games.


Pep Guardiola says Manchester City have to remain calm in order to win the Premier League title after securing a win in the Manchester derby.


It’s advantage City once again, at the top of the Premier League table after securing a 2-0 win over arch-rivals Manchester United on Wednesday night.


The Citizens broke the deadlock through Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane doubled the lead when he rounded off a good run from Raheem Sterling as they sealed three points at Old Trafford.


"We're still not champions with three games left," Guardiola, whose side will retain their title if they win their remaining league matches, told Sky Sports.


"I told the players don't read tomorrow, don't watch the television, just rest and sleep a lot and go in there against Burnley.


"We go to Burnley and we know how tough it will be. It's important to be calm."



Speaking to BBC Sport, the Spaniard said"We play with a lot of pressure. They were playing for Champions League qualification. After their 4-0 defeat by Everton, we knew their players would be committed.


"We lost some balls in the middle of the pitch in the first half and they had counter-attacks. We did well to win the game in the second half. Fortunately we made an incredible second half."


City have scored 157 goals in all competitions this season - the most by an English top-flight side in a single season in history.
