Guardiola is not ruling out further slip ups from his side and used examples from Spanish football and the National Basketball Association to prove his point.

And manager Pep Guardiola says the Argentina forward could not train after that incident, but pushed himself in an unsuccessful attempt to rescue City's European campaign in the final 24 minutes of the second leg against Liverpool. "That has happened. We have to try to focus on our games". "We are sad we went out of the Champions League, but it's hard to take the way it happened".

"I don't know. We can not forget he was one month injured. But it doesn't depend on the United result, it's in our hands, it's up to us to win our games, and we are able to win two games". "We handled the pressure - the good, the bad situations - the whole season".

First of all, City's rivals would need to win relentlessly between now and the end of the season to have any chance of threatening their place at the summit. We have to handle that.

"Of course it can happen, I assure you", Guardiola said about City's prospects of throwing away the title. Real Madrid, years ago, lost five games in a row and didn't win the league. So of course it can happen, no doubts about that.

"After that game I don't know if he'll be ready for the Swansea game (on April 22)".

"Two years ago, never before, in the National Basketball Association finals one team recovered from 3-1 down". One year ago Cavaliers won 4-3 against Golden State Warriors, winning three games in a row. That is a good advantage. "We have 14 players plus the kids. Congratulations to the opponents if they beat us".

Guardiola is concerned about the psychological effect that three defeats in a week might have on his players as they look to secure the trophy.

He added: "No, I don't think so".

Ireland defender Shane Duffy has been generally excellent on the Seagulls' debut season in the Premier League, but the big Derry man will be looking to bounce back after a costly mistake last weekend allowed Steve Mounie to score in the 1-1 draw with Huddersfield.

Manchester United stars played loud music in the dressing room after recording a 3-2 victory in the Manchester derby against City.

"The way we run is not a problem". That is normal, they are human beings. That happened. So we have to play tomorrow and after that we see the result from United. The condition for itself I think doesn't exist.

During the defeat the two defeats to Liverpool, City were on the wrong end of three incorrect offside decisions that would have been overturned by VAR but clubs have voted against it being introduced.
