Despite Manchester City's convincing win over Burnley in the Premier League on Tuesday night, manager Pep Guardiola has insisted it would be stupid to think his team can catch league leaders Liverpool.
City are back up to second following their 4-1 win away at Burnley on Tuesday, thanks to a brace from Gabriel Jesus, and goals from Rodri and Riyad Mahrez.
Despite moving above Leicester City, the Foxes have a game in hand over the Manchester club, as do Liverpool, who are currently eight points above Guardiola's side. It seems to be for this reason that Guardiola does not believe catching the Reds in the title race is a realistic notion.
"For the distance we have with Liverpool, it would be crazy to think about the title," he said, according to ESPN.
"Like everyone say we are out, we have no chance.
"We are thinking about ourselves and the next game. To think how many ways to win to be close is a stupid way to think."
After 15 games in the Premier League this season, City have won 10 matches, drawn twice and lost on three occasions.
