Man City head into their game against West Ham tonight with a great opportunity to draw level on points with Liverpool, with a win also taking them within a point of Arsenal and Spurs.
While Guardiola may have conceded the title is beyond his side this season, there is still the important business of Champions League qualification to compete for.
Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool all dropped points last night. And while Chelsea did the same, it looks increasingly likely that their nine point lead is unassailable.

Pep Guardiola has key decisions to make in certain positions, with a few injury concerns that could also shape his decision-making.
Claudio Bravo will start ahead of Willy Caballero and John Stones looks likely to be swapped for Aleksandar Kolarov.
Fernandinho is back from suspension and looks likely to come straight back into midfield. Fabian Delph is now available once more after returning to action at the weekend.
Captain Vincent Kompany is also once again available for selection following his injury nightmare in the first half of the season, and if Guardiola feels he can start his second game in the week he will start ahead of Nicolás Otamendi.
Aguero is a slight injury concern, but should start for the Citizens instead of new signing Gabriel Jesus, while Ilkay Gundogan remains out for the season.
