​Pep Guardiola insists more people want Liverpool to win the Premier League due to the club's history ahead of the final day of the season. 


The title is still up for grabs heading into the final day of the season, with Manchester City and Liverpool hosting Aston Villa and Wolves respectively on Sunday.

And ahead of the Blues' Etihad showdown against Steven Gerrard's team, the Spaniard was once again asked about the neutral support.

Guardiola reckons more fans want Liverpool to pip his side to the title as they have a greater history of winning championships. 

He also believes Man City have been the 'outsiders in the last decade' as they look to claim their eighth league title this weekend. 

The 51-year-old said: "I'm sure my English isn't good after 4, 5 years. I said in the time you arrive in the titles, the teams with more history have more supporters.

"It happens in Spain and Germany and Italy. We are outsiders in the last decade.

"In that moment, of course people don't want Liverpool or us to win. Liverpool fans want to win, I'm not saying all the country are Liverpool fans but in general they are a team with more titles."

Guardiola added: "Maybe I'm wrong, but in countries all around the world there are two, three teams people support more than the other ones.

"Liverpool, United, Arsenal have a lot of history, we are new, how many times we arrive in this history? Brighton, Paul Dickov, I don't think so. It's not much. It's why we feel it's a privilege and won't waste this opportunity to enjoy the 95 minutes."

​Guardiola's latest claim comes after he said 'everyone in this country' wants the Reds to win the title. 

What's your thoughts on his take on the title race? Let us know.
