Guardiola not giving up on title bid despite Newcastle loss

Manchester United fans were satisfied with the comeback draw vs Burnley after the prospect of leaving the pitch with no points was a real possibility.

Newcastle hit back in the 66th minute when Salomon Rondon fired home before Matt Ritchie scored the victor from the spot after Fernandinho had fouled Sean Longstaff in the area.

City's defeat against Leicester was their third loss this season in the EPL in four games and it left them four points behind current leaders Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's men can go seven points clear with a victory against Leicester City on Wednesday, and Pep recognises his men face an uphill task to retain their crown. [Against Burnley] we win the game and get through.

The 32-year-old forward has scored seven of the Foxes' last 10 goals against the Reds and all his goals have come in just eight appearances.

Do you think Klopp's prediction affected City's poor result?

The Foxes could have taken the lead in the second-half with a spate of chances, with the nerves in the Anfield crowd evident. Tomorrow is a game for our opponent.

Valverde hit out at the actions, saying "You don't talk to a player under contract". I don't know what he thought at that moment. As far as future goalkeeper cover goes, the club's parent company City Football Group have signed the American Zack Steffen from Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew, to arrive in July. "I think he had the best position".

Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has not ruled out leaving the club this season if they do not strengthen the squad in the January transfer window.

"I have nothing more to say". "It's not important for making decisions, but they have to feel, especially for the players who have been here a long time and helped us to build what we are right now".

I hope Guardiola can raise his players and get their intensity back up to levels of last season and that in doing so he is able to be cheered up and we see the happier Guardiola back in the dug out.

"It was probably the clearest penalty situation we have had".
