Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says his side could still slip up and allow Manchester United to win the Premier League title.

City could clinch their third league title in seven seasons if they beat Tottenham on Saturday and United lose against West Bromwich Albion but Guardiola does not expect Jose Mourinho's side to lose momentum in the final stretch.

- Since the start of 2016/17, Southampton have failed to win any of their 22 Premier League matches against sides starting the day in the top six (D8 L14).

- The Blues have won their last four league games against Southampton - they've never won five in a row against them.

"The clubs recognised and are grateful for the substantial developments made by PGMOL Managing Director Mike Riley and his team".

Speaking at a press conference, Guardiola said: "Since November and December we have already been champions - when I saw pundits and people (say it is) "impossible for City to drop points".

They were trying to overturn a three-goal first-leg deficit and were level at 1-1 in the return game when the striker was introduced, but lost 2-1.

"We tried to reach the semifinals [of the Champions League], to win the Premier League", Guardiola said. "We can not forget he was one month injured". "It's in our hands, we don't depend on anyone else, and that's a good advantage", he said.

Aguero suffered a knee problem that kept him out for a month before the Argentina striker managed two second-half substitute appearances in City's last two defeats - by Manchester United in the league and Liverpool in the Champions League.

"We are able to win the two games [we need to confirm the title] and we will do that".

"What I say to the players - and what they show every game - is that it is not done. We can not forget he was injured for one month", Guardiola said.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola referred to Tottenham Hotspur as the "Harry Kane team" in October, but six months on he is full of praise for the North Londoners.

"I thought he went too strong against Everton before the Liverpool game". After losing to United, how we played against Liverpool was top. I'm sorry, but we're going to do it in that way, and after that we'll see.

Sergio Aguero could be a big miss for City as they are one of his favoured opponent.
