Pep Guardiola has set a target for his squad as the season winds down, as he wants thirty points from their next 14 matches.
Manchester City recovered from their first ever domestic loss, losing 4-3 to Liverpool last week, by beating Newcastle 3-1 to restore a 12-point lead.
Guardiola is now asking for 10 more wins from his squad as he looks to secure the PL title this season.
“Always after the defeat against Liverpool, you have a little bit of doubt how you would react – what would happen if you went two games in a row not winning,” he told a news conference. “That’s why it was so important.
“We need mathematically 10 victories to be champions. We are going to try to win game by game.”
