Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says “the distance is big” but still believes his team can catch Liverpool in the Premier League title race.
City’s 2-0 defeat by Wolves means they are now eight points behind the Reds.
It is the biggest lead any side has had after eight games in the Premier League era – the previous biggest was Chelsea in 2014, who went on to win the title.
“I know these guys,” said Guardiola. “They are still incredibly involved and they can still do it.”
The defeat means City are experiencing their worst start since the 2013-14 campaign under Manuel Pellegrini, when they went on to win the title.
