Pep calls for City focus

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says his side must focus on themselves as they look to close out the Premier League title.

The Citizens currently sit 16 points clear of Manchester United and if all goes well, they could wrap up the title against the Red Devils on 7th April.

After a slight blip, Guardiola's side brushed Arsenal aside in last Sunday's EFL Cup final and recorded a repeat 3-0 win when they visited the Gunners on Thursday.

All looks good for Guardiola and his men and they will again be looking to prove their superiority when Chelsea visit the Etihad on Sunday.

The most important thing is it depends on us.

City dominated when the pair met at Stamford Bridge in September, producing one of the most one-sided 1-0 victories in Premier League history.

Another victory is 1/2, with the draw 19/5 and the Blues 11/2.
With a 4-0 advantage heading into Wednesday's Champions League last-16 tie against FC Basel, Guardiola can afford to send out his best team against Antonio Conte's men.

Another victory would see City take another significant step towards the Premier League title and Pep admits things are going well.

However, the 47-year-old is keen to ensure his players do not lose concentration, adding that they must continue to focus on their own task, rather than fortunes of others.
"We are close, we cannot deny that," Guardiola told Sky Sports. "But it is not done. When you think it is done, it is not done

"It is in our hands - the most important thing is it depends on us and we have to close it out."
