Pep Guardiola has cheekily invited Manchester United fans to join in the celebrations if Manchester City win the Premier League title on Sunday and deny Liverpool a historic quadruple.
Guardiola, who recently claimed the country wanted Liverpool to win the league, was shocked to discover that United supporters are actually rooting for City to beat Aston Villa at the Etihad to be champions.
United do not want bitter rivals Liverpool to match United’s record 20 league championships and surpass Sir Alex Ferguson’s 1999 treble, so supporting City is seen as the lesser of evils.

‘So United like City better than Liverpool? Oh my God, I didn’t know,” Guardiola admitted on the eve of Sunday’s title decider. “Welcome United fans if you want to join us on the streets but you have to wear the blue shirt, you have to wear it. I was wrong when I said that everyone in this country wants Liverpool to win.
Amid a worrying trend in the game regarding pitch invasions, Guardiola said he was sure City fans would “behave themselves” and had no plans to speak to his players about safety concerns.
Guardiola could get England defenders John Stones and Kyle Walker involved on Sunday after injuries. The game will also be a farewell for the club’s captain, Fernandinho.
