Manchester City Boss Pep Guardiola Admits He's ''Happy'' When Liverpool Don't Win

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted he enjoys seeing Premier League title rivals Liverpool drop points.   

There is little to choose between the two teams as the season enters the final furlong but Liverpool's failure to take maximum points from games they'd have normally expected to win has left the door open for City. Liverpool have won only one of their last four league games. 

Guardiola's men are just a point behind Liverpool who were unable to beat Manchester United on Sunday - held to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.

"We are focused on our games but of course we look what they do and when they don't win, we're happy," said Guardiola. "I guess Liverpool are happy when we don't win. The same with Tottenham and the other ones. We cannot deny it."

After picking up the Carabao Cup on Sunday, City return to league action on Wednesday when West Ham United visit the Etihad Stadium. West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is expected to receive a warm welcome from the City fans after three successful seasons at the club.

"He (Pellegrini) did an incredible job," stated Guardiola. "The Premier League he won was outstanding, the amount of goals, the way they played. He had a good team and they did well. He's an excellent person. He's always polite, he respects the clubs where he has been in charge."

City will be approaching the game full of confidence after two wins over Chelsea in the past three weeks, including that amazing 6-0 success in the Premier League.
