"I think Manchester City will come into this game knowing that they are still unstable".

'I don't know how he is, ' said Guardiola.

"The thing is about the difference in the Champions League game is they obviously had to win by four goals or whatever so they had to come out", he said.

City and Guardiola have rarely found themselves in the position that are now in during their time together, and it will be a test of their resolve as they look to pull themselves out of a rare slump at Southampton on Sunday.

"But Tottenham [in third] will be looking to capitalise as well because we both play each other, so both of us can't pick up full points".

We might be nine points in front now but we have to go to Manchester City in five days.

"This will go the whole way, but we're in a good position just now". If we want to be there as far as possible until the end, we have to win games. "It's about continuing that and trying to build on every game that we play".

"We will be prepared for a very tough game".
