Pep Guardiola has issued an ominous warning to his rivals by insisting his star Manchester City players will be dropped if they think the league is done and dusted.
City host Wolves on the back of twenty straight wins with his side now 12 clear at the top of the table.
But the Spaniard is not letting up.
“We are winning and getting results, but we have to be demanding and be over the players, telling them we can do better,” Guardiola said.
“If I feel that everyone is thinking the job is done, or how good it is, this guy is not going to play.
“I’m so intuitive to know exactly the guys who are not ready to continue what we have to do. The champion is Liverpool, we are not. To do it we still have to win eight, nine or 10 games and it’s a lot of games.”
A draw against Wolves – who start on the back of a 1-1 draw against Newcastle – would see the club go 27 games undefeated which would equal the club record.
And that record must be within touching distance as Guardiola is expected to bring back Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Joao Cancelo, Rodri and Phil Foden into his starting lineup.
Up front, it is either Sergio Aguero or Gabriel Jesus. City fans must be licking their lips.
The match kicks off at 10pm.
Suggested bet: Both teams to score (NO) at 1.47
