Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says his side showed relegation form in the first half of their win over Aston Villa, as they cut Liverpool's lead at the top of the table to three points.
Speaking about his side's title challenge, Guardiola said: "I am not concerned about the table, I am concerned all the time with how we play.
"If we play at the level we did in the second half, we can be there until the end of the season, I am sure of that.
"But if we play as we did in the first half, we will be relegated or in the relegation positions, far away from leading the table. We did not play the way we should play, and the only player who was aggressive when we had the ball was Raheem.
"In the second half, we imitated him. He showed us the way we wanted to play, and it was much better."
