Manchester City are now seven points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool and also fell below Tottenham following a 2-1 defeat to Leicester today.
City’s second defeat on the bounce has some doubting their title credentials with the gap between Jurgen Klopp’s men and Pep’s side increasing, and the Blues simply can’t afford to drop many more points.
Today’s goal scorer for City, Bernardo Silva, is fully aware of that and believes even if the champions beat Liverpool in January, winning the title won’t be easy after these slip-ups.
“We started quite well but we weren’t able to play as usual and in the end they scored an amazing goal. We are not happy but we try to overcome the situation,” Bernardo told the BBC.
“Seven points to Liverpool is starting to be a lot, we are not playing as well as we want at this part of the season. We have to find an explanation.
“We need to start winning games but we can’t rely on ourselves. Even if we beat Liverpool now it won’t be easy.
“We have lost two games that we shouldn’t do if we are in a race for the title. There are a lot of games left and it’s mathematically possible but we have to be almost perfect from now.”
