Pep Guardiola's side have won 15 of their last 16 league games, including Wednesday's Manchester derby at Old TraffordManchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes the Premier League title race will come down to "who handles the pressure better" between now and the end of the season.City go into Sunday's game against Burnley two points behind league leaders Liverpool but with a game in hand over Jurgen Klopp's side."Now it's who handles the pressure, who is more stable," said Guardiola.
"Every game it is a little more difficult with the pressure."

"If we win on Sunday, next Monday [against Leicester], and the last game in Brighton we will be champions. All we have to do is focus on what we have to do and win our games."We lose a game? Bad luck and next season we will be back, hopefully stronger."

City can still reach 98 points - just two shy of last season's record 100-point haul - if they win their last three games, while Klopp's team could end the season as runners-up on 97 points."The difference between this season and last season is one reason - Liverpool," said Guardiola."We did the same [as last season] but Liverpool are much, much better."They've been incredibly consistent but we don't have to look at what they do. It's in our hands."That is the little advantage that we have right now."
