Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola claims that the fans are desperate for the team to seal the Premier League crown against Manchester United.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has claimed that it is "important" to the fans for the club to seal the Premier League title against arch-rivals Manchester United, but he is not getting carried away.

Monday evening's 2-0 triumph over Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium means that the club need just two more wins to secure the crown.

If the blue half of Manchester get a result against Everton after the international break, then a victory over United at the Etihad Stadium will ensure that City are title winners.

"To be champions is tough, it's complicated," Guardiola told Sky Sports News. "Our club does not have a history of a lot of titles. As soon as possible will be better but now we can be relaxed, the players go away with their international teams. It doesn't matter where we win it.

"I understand that it is important to our fans to win it against United but the target is the next game at Everton. After that, if we play like today sooner or later we will be champions."

City have a 16-point lead at the top of the table.
