Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has played down the suggestions that Liverpool’s lead at the top of the Premier League is embarrassing.

Liverpool extended their lead at the top to 22 points, following Manchester City’s defeat to Spurs.

Guardiola, however, refused to be drawn on whether the current situation is both unhealthy and embarrassing for the league.

“It is what it is,” the Spaniard told the press at his weekly media briefing. “It is difficult in the modern game and specific circumstances, for the number of games, it always was tight. Two seasons ago we did something incredible and Liverpool are doing it right now.

“So Liverpool will try to do the next season what we tried to do to in the previous season and this season as well. The rest of the people are trying to reduce this gap. The desire of the big tournaments like the Premier League, broadcasters, such as TV’s or whatever…it depends on the teams – the managers and the players especially, how it is going on.

“It is not them that dictate it. Before that it was so equal, that is true, now the tendency has changed a little bit. Now a team clearly dominates for one season. It depends on Liverpool and the other teams what happens in the future.”
