Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said he does not know if they will successfully defend the Premier League title, after regaining their position at the top of the table.
City beat Everton 2-0 on Wednesday, thanks to goals from Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus, to go top for the first time since December 16.
They are only above Liverpool on goal difference and Jurgen Klopp’s side can reclaim first position on Saturday, when they face Bournemouth.
Speaking after the victory on Merseyside, Guardiola said of City’s title hopes: “I don’t know how far we will get, maybe we will die in the road, but we are trying.
“We have played one more game than Liverpool, it’s good to be top but Liverpool has a game at Old Trafford.
“I don’t think too much about that but four or five days ago we could have been seven points behind, it is a lesson to never give up.
“We have an incredible test on Sunday against Chelsea.”
