‘Congratulations to Liverpool’ – Guardiola reacts as Man City’s loss to Chelsea hands Klopp’s men title

    Pep Guardiola has congratulated champions Liverpool after Manchester City relinquished their Premier League crown with a 2-1 defeat at Chelsea.

    The defending champions headed to Stamford Bridge knowing only victory would delay Liverpool’s title celebrations, but were beaten 2-1 in west London as goals from Christian Pulisic and Willian secured a vital three points for Frank Lampard’s side.

    Kevin De Bruyne’s brilliant free-kick proved little more than a consolation for City who were reduced to 10-men following a goal-line handball by Fernandinho, the Brazilian conceding a penalty which was duly converted by compatriot Willian.

    Defeat was City’s eighth of the season and confirmed league leaders Liverpool as champions for the first time in three decades, and Guardiola was quick to congratulate a side who have enjoyed a record-breaking run to a drought-breaking league title.

    “In terms of the game, we played good. Not a lot of pressure in the box. But we play in general a good game but our mistakes…” Guardiola told BT Sport.

    “Congratulations to Liverpool for this great season. We still have five or six weeks to play but we won a lot in the last few years and of course we want to close the gap.

    “After two seasons the gap is big. We were not consistent like the previous seasons.

    ”Liverpool won the Champions League and were given confidence. They played every game like it was their last game. In the beginning, we didn’t play like that way.

    ”We cannot forget we are still second in the league so we are better than a lot of the teams.”
