Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has made a bold Premier League title prediction ahead of Man City’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Speaking ahead of the game, Guardiola played down City’s prolific goalscoring run in their last four matches, insisting a win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is a must if Manchester City must win the Premier League title.

“Fifteen goals (in four matches) is fine, it gave us the points to be here but it doesn’t give you an extra thing for tomorrow when you start the game,” Guardiola said at Monday’s pre-match press conference.

“The mindset is easy, in terms of if we don’t win we are not going to win the Premier League and this is what we have to do.”

Pep Guardiola is hoping to become the first Premier League manager to win the English topflight four times on the bounce should they pip Arsenal to the title this season.

The Premier League and European champions have been on a prolific form in the run-in to the English topflight race.

Challengers, Arsenal, are leading by a point on top of the table but will have the lead chalked off if Manchester City win against Tottenham Hotspur.

While City is aiming for their sixth Premier League title and four on the bounce, Arsenal are hoping to end their 20-year wait for the trophy.

Arsenal star, Kai Havertz, who assisted Arsenal’s lone winner against Manchester United at Old Trafford to keep the Gunners in the title race, has backed Tottenham Hotspur to stop Manchester City from winning the Premier League title.

Speaking after the United game, Kai Havertz said he is going to be a big fan of the North London rivals should they be of service to the Gunners’ push for the Premier League title by forcing City to drop points.

While the Gunners are banking on the London neighbors to scuttle Pep Guardiola’s Premier League title charge, it is not a dead rubber tie for the Lilywhites. They have a lot to play for in their push for Champions League football next season.

The Ange Postecoglou-led side need a win against Manchester City to drag the race for the Champions League final to the matchday after challengers Aston Villa dropped points against Liverpool at Villa Park a six-goal thriller draw.
