Suara.com – Pep Guardiola demands Manchester City continue their fertility trend ahead of the Premier League match against Leeds United at home to at Elland Road, Saturday (30/4/2022) night.
In the last three games City have been very fertile, collecting 12 goals through 3-0 wins over Brighton & Hove Albion and 5-1 against Watford in the Premier League, and 4-3 against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League semifinals.
“We had a great last three games, scored a lot of goals and created more chances, that’s what we have to continue,” Guardiola said at a pre-match press conference, quoted from City’s official website as published by Antara, Saturday.
The fertility trend is clearly important considering that City, who are at the top of the Premier League standings, are currently only one point ahead of Liverpool.

“Everyone at this club knows what we are betting on. We know what we have to do,” said the coach.
On the other hand, Guardiola also emphasized that City are focused on the match against Leeds even though four days later they have to fly to Spain for the second leg of the Champions League semi-final.
“This is our most important game. After Madrid, whether we reach the final or not, we have four games and we can focus on the Premier League,” he said.
“We’ve talked about that. We talked about how special the opposing team is and we are ready to accept the challenge, we know what we have to do and will try to do it,” added Guardiola.
On the other hand, Guardiola also did not forget how last season City experienced difficulties against Leeds and failed to record a win at all in two meetings.
