EPL: Man City Do Feel The Tension Of Title Race - Guardiola

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Manchester City will be affected by the nerves of going for a fourth consecutive Premier League title on Sunday, said Pep Guardiola despite his side's experience.

City moved to the top of the table, two points ahead of Arsenal, thanks to Erling Haaland's second-half double to beat their bogey side Tottenham on Tuesday.

It is the first time Guardiola's men have won at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League, but it was a far from vintage performance.

City have won eight straight Premier League games and are unbeaten from open play in any competition since 6 December.

But they host West Ham on the final day knowing anything less than victory will allow Arsenal to take the title should they beat Everton.

"They were playing for the consequences of the result. When you play football thinking about the consequences, you are going to lose the Premier League, you cannot perform at your best level," said Guardiola of his side's display."But they are human beings so I can understand the pressure is there. "It will be the same against West Ham. We will feel the pressure."
