Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has said that Liverpool will be champions if his team drops points.
Guardiola was speaking to the media after a 3-0 win over Brighton at the Etihad on Wednesday night.
There were no goals in the first half, but Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva all scored after the break to give the champions all three points.
