LONDON: Pep Guardiola says he is satisfied with the mental state of his Manchester city players even though they lost twice the advantage to tie 2-2 with Newcastle and slide further back Premier league leaders Liverpool .

Guardiola, whose defending champions are 11 points away from Jurgen Klopp's team with more than a third of the season eliminated, is adamant that City players have not been affected by a bad run of just one win in five games in All competitions

You have to see how the players run and how they fight and how they try to do it, body language, we never give up, so the team is always there, that's my feeling, he said.

The game is what it is. In my opinion, it was good. We played well with the ball, we were solid, we granted few counterattacks, but soccer It's how many goals he scores and how he doesn't concede.

You accept that. Sometimes it happens.

City has the Manchester derby on Saturday, but Guardiola is focused on Tuesday's one-way trip to Burnley in advance.

I'm not thinking about how many games we have to win, he said. Just try to win next.

"Last season when we were here, we were not talking about the Premier league , how many games you have to win.

It's not about that. It's just recovering, preparing and trying to win against Burnley, that's what you have to do, and after that, the derby and take these steps.
