“It’s not going to happen again” – Pep Guardiola relishing opportunity to create Premier League history 



| Last Updated:


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has revealed his excitement at the prospect of making Premier League history. 

The Sky Blues could become the first team to win four consecutive Premier League titles next weekend, with Manchester City requiring two wins from their remaining two matches to be crowned Champions. 

Pep Guardiola’s side travel to Tottenham on Tuesday evening looking to return to the top of the Premier League table with a victory, prior to hosting West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. 

Manchester City are bidding to win a sixth league title in seven years, and could also retain the Emirates FA Cup trophy this season, with a showdown clash with Manchester United at Wembley Stadium later this month. 

The Cityzens have been locked in another title battle against Arsenal, with the Gunners having returned to the top of the table with a win at Old Trafford against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon. 

Manchester City have already won both the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup this season, with the opportunity to follow-up last season’s historic treble with four pieces of silverware. 

The Blues lost both Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez at the end of last season, but a number of the Manchester City squad could become six-time winners of the Premier League. 

A trio of the first-team squad could also win their first title, with Jeremy Doku, Josko Gvardiol and Matheus Nunes having all moved to the Etihad Stadium last summer. 

Ahead of Tuesday’s pivotal trip to north London, Guardiola has revealed that he is relishing the opportunity to create more history. 

“I think the players know that it’s not just the Club, it’s not just the managers and staff, it’s from themselves.

“Especially for some of the new ones to win their first Premier League, for the senior guys like they have the chance to win the sixth Premier League in seven years, or the fourth in a row. 

“And something like it’s not going to happen again, so that’s why we have to do our best to give us a chance next Sunday, to give us the opportunity to win the last game against West Ham and be Champions. That’s why we travel tomorrow to London.” 

Manchester City are winless in the Premier League away to Tottenham since October 2018, and have scored just one goal at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

Nathan Ake scored the Blues’ sole goal during a 0-1 win in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round in January, scoring from six-yards during the final minutes of the tie.
