Pep Guardiola admitted that the pressure in the title race is huge after Manchester City temporarily returned to the top of the league with a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.
Raheem Sterling scored a brace before Luka Milivojevic pulled one back for the hosts to make things interesting at the end of the game. However, Gabriel Jesus netted in stoppage time to ease City’s nerves and put the pressure back on Liverpool.
Guardiola, however, admitted that both sides are feeling the pressure.
He said: “This pressure is incredible. We are fighting to be champions back to back. In two seasons we’ve got 83 points with five games left. We’ve won two titles (Community Shield) and now it’s the FA Cup final.”
Sterling stood out with yet another impressive performance, and the City boss highlighted the importance of his contribution.
“He missed the first chance but the first goal was incredible. He’s a guy who has scored a lot of goals. He fought and helped Kyle Walker.”
