Manchester City's Aguero out of Tottenham clash

"We have to do it from tomorrow", Guardiola added.

THREE DEFEATS IN the space of a week have taken some of the gloss off a Manchester City side that was being pre-maturely hailed as one of the best club sides of all-time earlier this season. It's not unusual for a team to win a lot of a games and when they lose people ask "what happened?

You can say it's a goal in the dressing room but it's not allowed on the pitch", said Guardiola yesterday.

"We are able to win the two games [we need to confirm the title] and we will do that".

'I don't know about Swansea (next week) if he'll be ready, but hopefully for the last games if we need him and especially for the World Cup, ' said Guardiola.

"The pundits in November, they said it was already done - it was impossible that City, if they hadn't lost in six months, it's impossible for them to drop points", he said.

The defeat was City's third in a week following their failure to clinch the Premier League title in the Manchester derby, and Guardiola's side face a hard game against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday. The players have shown every day, in every game [since then] that it's not done because if it was they wouldn't play the way they play. Of course it can happen - in football, in sports. We handled the pressure between the good and bad moments for the entire season, not just in this period.

First of all, City's rivals would need to win relentlessly between now and the end of the season to have any chance of threatening their place at the summit.

When City won their first Premier League title in 2012, they pulled back an eight-point deficit with only six games left, and Guardiola said: "Of course it can happen, I assure you".

City were two up in the Manchester derby before Paul Pogba inspired a United comeback, scoring twice in the second half of their 3-2 win. So of course it can happen, no doubts about that. One year ago Cavaliers won 4-3 against Golden State Warriors, winning three games in a row. We saw how good we were doing - 2-0 is completely different. 'But after Liverpool, the way we played against United was tough, the way we started against Liverpool was tough. A team that included players such as Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo, David Beckham, Iker Casillas and Raul lost six of their last seven games to finish seven points behind Valencia having led by 11 points at one stage.

"When the opponent is good, we will congratulate our opponents on beating us, and after learn from that for the next game".

City will be without two key players though - leading scorer Sergio Aguero has aggravated a knee injury amid fears he could miss the rest of the season while midfielder Fernandinho is suspended for two games after picking up 10 bookings.
