Manchester City is currently in the second place of the English Premier League standings, just three points behind leaders Liverpool.

Manchester City won the 2017-2018 season of the English Premier League with 100 points.

And now with 25 matches played out of 38, the team is currently in the second spot of the table with 59 points.

The Citizens are just three points behind leaders Liverpool.

And for footballer Danilo, City manager Pep Guardiola has what it takes to guide them to a back-to-back championship.

“Pep, for example, is a winner,” he told Sky Sports.

“He won a lot of titles with his previous teams so that helps us every day, every game.”

“Every situation is completely different even for him but his experience can help us,” Danilo added.

“You have to play your game and play for another result. Sometimes you play before or after [your title opponents] and you have to try and put in the same performance every game.”

“If you stay calm and keep focused then you can win the title,” he continued.

“It is much better to be on the top [instead of on second].”

“In this time we are second and every game we are trying to get Liverpool, but if we have the opportunity to be on top it would be much better for us,” he explained.

“It was good for us and everyone in the dressing room knows that, but if we don’t do our job it will not be enough.”

“So we are a bit happy but knowing we have to do a bigger job,” he said about the Liverpool tied this week.

“It was a disaster for us dropping points at Newcastle but the season is long. There are lots of games to play.”

“Liverpool are doing well but if you keep going and win games then you can come back,” Danilo concluded.
