Below is a full recap of the manager’s quotes and the players’ reaction on social media.
Pep Guardiola Press Conference
“I cannot deny the distance to the next team. There is still a lot to play for, but I don’t know what will happen.
“But yes, to have 72 points in February, it’s a lot. I would like to take that question after 38 games! We have a lot of injuries and in the next games if we get players back, it will be good. But so far, it’s been so good. We enjoy what we have done a lot, but we need to lift titles.
“If we can keep this spirit for the rest of the season, for the other teams it will be tough. oday, in the first half we were not perfect. Leicester are so complicated. Especially Vardy, who is so dangerous.
“Against Burnley we missed a lot of chances but today we were there. We are strong at home. We feel comfortable here at home.
“When one guy scores four goals, he deserves all the credit. He fought, he played really well, and he scored goals.
