Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has warned that his side are unlikely to win all their remaining Premier League games following the leaders’ 3-1 victory over Watford at Etihad Stadium.
Raheem Sterling’s hat-trick helped City move just a point clear of Liverpool, who defeated Burnley on Sunday.
“It is almost impossible if we go ahead in all competitions not to drop points,” said Guardiola.
“We have to be calm and prepare for next week [against Schalke].”
City hosted the Bundesliga side in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday, leading 3-2 from the first leg in Germany.
They then traveled to Swansea, who are 15th in the Championship, in the last eight of the FA Cup on Saturday.
