Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has predicted that his side’s Premier League clash against Brighton this weekend will be a “tough” match.
Guardiola said this following Man City’s Premier League 1-0 win over Leicester City on Monday night at Etihad.
The first half ended goalless, before captain, Vincent Kompany unleashed an unstoppable effort to seal all three points for Guardiola’s men against the visitors.
“One game left – it will be so tough like today – we are away and we saw Brighton had a good game at Arsenal,” Guardiola told BBC Sport.
“But it is in our hands, don’t forget but we could have been 10 points behind if we lost to Liverpool here [on January 3].
“We were seven points behind, but we are in the last game and it is in our hands. We are going to prepare well.
“We’ll see if Brighton defend deep or will be more offensive. It will be tough, but hopefully, we will have the performance to be champions.”
