Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has admitted it will be difficult stopping the league leaders, Chelsea from winning the league. Chelsea beat Bournemouth 3-0 on boxing day to extend their winning streak to 12 games and opening up a 7 point lead at the top of the table.
Manchester City moved to second on the Premier League log after beating Hull City 3-0 and in his post-match conference, Guardiola suggested that Chelsea competing on just one front makes them favorites.
“We have played seven more than [Chelsea], which is why it will be tough,” said Guardiola.
“Liverpool went so close [to the title] one year because they had one game a week and last year, for Leicester, it happened the same.
