Guardiola dismisses Juventus reports following Watford win

Guardiola dismisses Juventus reports following Watford win

"My first comment is we won because we deserved to win by far". SCHKALE 04:Domenico Tedesco's men have been of poor form lately, after the first leg defeat against Manchester City they went on to lose four consecutive matches in the Bundesliga.

"But I feel we will drop points, as few as possible, and try to keep the distance with Liverpool until the last few fixtures and have a chance in the last few fixtures".

Guardiola says his player should not focus too much in the title race, instead taking things game by game as City look to balance the demands of the remaining three competitions.

"I don't know whether it is important for the rest of the people but it is important for ourselves". Press Association Sport understands Watford are monitoring the situation following reports they could also take action.

The exit of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain from the competition last week showed the strength in depth, Guardiola said, and how hard it is to win. "I hope to be here another two years and maybe another".

"Going through is another step, but it is hard".

The reigning champions laid down the gauntlet to Jurgen Klopp's Reds on Saturday evening as their in-form forward netted a second-half hat-trick in just 13 minutes 12 seconds.

Guardiola described his club as teenagers compared to others with decades-long history in the competition but agreed they were getting nearer. "We still have a job to do", he said. "When you go through the group stages, it's a big success, only a few teams go through every season. Nobody expected it. And a young Ajax team who went to Madrid".

However, the five-time Scudetto victor told reporters after Friday's 4-1 Serie A win over Udinese that Juve had developed an "obsession" with Champions League glory at the expense of acknowledging their considerable achievements elsewhere in his tenure.

Guardiola also pointed to United and Ajax's famous comebacks against PSG and Real Madrid respectively last week as proof that City can not take Schalke for granted.

"Today we started a competition with nine games - not one with 38", he said.

"Players can do something unique".
