Pep Guardiola told his Manchester City players that they “killed” Manchester United after beating them in December.
City beat United 2-1 at Old Trafford before the turn of the year with goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi.
The pair cancelled out Marcus Rashford’s first-half stoppage-time equaliser to gift City a crucial victory, which put them 11 points ahead of their closest rivals after just 16 games.
After the match, Guardiola declared that “only Manchester City can lose the Premier League right now”.
In scenes shown by upcoming Amazon Prime fly-on-the-wall documentary All or Nothing, Guardiola rallies his players after the match with a rousing speech.
“You killed them while playing football,” Guardiola said. “And even in the bad moments you were there, guys. You were outstanding.
“We travelled there to our neighbours and showed what we are. And you did it, guys, that’s why you deserve all my respect.
“It’s all in our hands. Only Manchester City can lose the Premier League right now.”
