Pep Guardiola says it’s better not to think about how many points Liverpool are ahead of his Man City side.
City lost 2-0 at home against Wolves on Sunday to fall eight points off the pace in the Premier League.
He still thinks his team, the reigning champions, can come back to triumph, but isn’t keen about ruminating on the Reds’ advantage.
"I know these guys," said Guardiola. "They are still incredibly involved and they can still do it."
"The distance is big, I know that. For many circumstances, they didn't drop points. It is better not to think one team is eight points ahead. It is only October. There are still a lot of games. Most of the teams who won in the past, the year after, they don't win.
"It was a bad day. I had a feeling today would be the day when we created less. We have faced many teams defending deep and more or less we found a way to do it but today we had a problem.”
