Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said he is looking past their 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday and now has one eye on their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday and the Premier League, which he has labelled “the most important title of the season.”
City beat Spurs 1-0, but were utterly dominant at Wembley, recording 21 shots compared to Spurs’ two.
The victory marks the first piece of the jigsaw, in what could end up being a Treble-winning season for Guardiola this campaign.
City are 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League with five matches left and also face Paris Saint-Germain for a place in the Champions League final.
“We cannot deny it, you have one eye on the Champions League,” Guardiola said.
“[But] Every game we take seriously, or it is impossible to win four Carabao Cups in a row.
“Now we rest and prepare the semifinal against PSG, after that we are two wins away from trying to win again the most important title of the season.
“The Premier League is the nicest one, it’s the one I am so proud of. We are close. We need two victories. Between this crazy schedule, between the games against PSG, we’ll try to win the first one against Crystal Palace.”
