Manchester Metropolis boss Pep Guardiola is hoping for a Premier League favour from opponents Manchester United on Sunday but says talk of winning four trophies “sells an illusion.”

Metropolis are aiming to select out the Carabao Cup by beating Chelsea at Wembley after United host Liverpool – level on components with Metropolis – at Prone Trafford.

“Clearly, it’d be vivid if United can secure a result,” Guardiola said.

“However now it’s February and it’s impossible to chat about winning four.”

Metropolis trailed Liverpool by seven components on 19 January but a return to prime have has considered Guardiola asked over again relating to the opportunity of winning four trophies this season.

To boot to defending their Premier League and League Cup honours, Metropolis maintain an upcoming FA Cup quarter-final in opposition to Swansea and took a 3-2 lead at Schalke in the first leg of their Champions League final 16 tie this week.

Guardiola, who has beforehand referred to the quadruple as “myth”, said: “We have got a final and, when we’re in the final, it’s miles the largest game in the season.

“Per chance for United or Liverpool the League Cup just isn’t foremost attributable to they maintain many in the trophy cabinet and they maintain many, many titles, but or not it’s not the case for us.

“To decide the title would possibly be vivid, to play a final would possibly be vivid.

“Query me this question [about winning four trophies] in April or Could presumably well presumably and after I’m going to repeat you the respond. I’m going to not lie to you in Could presumably well presumably.

“However now it’s February and it’s impossible to chat about that. It sells an illusion. What number of cases, in England, has one team received four titles in a season?

“Originate not set that stress on our shoulders attributable to we don’t deserve it.

“The legacy in Sir Alex Ferguson’s United – he never did that. Liverpool in the 80s, what number of Champions Leagues did they maintain in their pockets? They didn’t attain that.”
