Pep Guardiola reveals what ruined their Premier League season

Pep Guardiola said Manchester City failed to match Liverpool’s passion to win the Premier League title. Guardiola side’s two-year reign as champions came to an end after they lost to Chelsea 2-1. The boss bemoaned the injury suffered by key defender Aymeric Laporte at the start of the season was the reason for City’s spluttering form. The French centre-back suffered a knee injury in September that sidelined him for five months. “We missed one important central defender. That was a real big problem for us,” he said. Guardiola conceded his players struggled to emulate the desire and drive shown by Jurgen Klopp’s team. “Maybe we didn’t arrive with the same passion; Liverpool played every single game like it was the last chance they have,” Guardiola said. "And maybe we didn’t get that moment, especially the key moments in the first part of the season. “That is the reality, that we are so far behind. Liverpool were fantastic in consistency throughout the whole season. We dropped points at the beginning of the season and Liverpool didn’t drop points.” Source: foxsports
