(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER PEP GUARDIOLA, ON WHY HE THINKS MAN CITY HAVE ECLIPSED UNITED IN RECENT YEARS, SAYING: "I think that the most important thing, the reason why is the fact that this club in the last decade grew a lot.
That's why it's not scary to go there and play when before it was maybe more difficult.
So now the distance, especially for the quality of the players that Manchester City had in the last 10 seasons made this game a little bit more equal than maybe before when it was a little bit... the gap was bigger.
So maybe that would be the reason why but honestly I don't know." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY MANAGER PEP GUARDIOLA, SAYING: "Well, four games left, so we obviously have to win all four games to retain the title.
It's not an easy place to go, but at the same time, a nice place to go.
So we know exactly what we have to do.
They fight to finish in the top four and we (fight) to retain the title and we're going to go there to do a good game." STORY: Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said Manchester United's home ground Old Trafford is no longer the fortress it used to be as City look to win all three points and take the lead in the Premier League title race.
City, who are two points behind league leaders Liverpool, play their game in hand at sixth-placed United on Wednesday (April 24), with the home side looking to make up for lost ground in their own battle for a top four spot.
United have lost only one league game at home this season but Guardiola, whose side have won on their last two visits to Old Trafford, was confident albeit wary of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team that are hurting after a 4-0 loss at Everton.
