Guardiola makes Steven Gerrard's Aston Villa vow after West Ham draw

The Premier League title race between Liverpool and Manchester City took another twist on Sunday afternoon

Pep Guardiola pained after Manchester City dropped points at West Ham

Pep Guardiola has vowed Manchester City will create a 'incredible environment' at the Etihad Stadium next Sunday as his side aim to have the final say in the Premier League title race against Liverpool's renowned Steven Gerrard's side.

The Sky Blues dropped two points on Sunday afternoon against West Ham, coming  back from a two-goal deficit at half-time,  courtesy of a Jarrod Bowen brace for David Moyes' men.

City responded well after the break, however, to earn a share of the spoils and avoid defeat. This result has presented Liverpool with a glimmer of hope in the race for top spot, with Jurgen Klopp's side capable of taking the head-to-head battle between the teams to the final day should the Reds get the better of Southampton on Tuesday evening.

Steven Gerrard could be Liverpool's hero once again should he cause an upset with Aston Villa next weekend, though Guardiola has insisted both his players and those attending the match will be up for the occasion.

"I can assure you our Etihad Stadium will be sold out," he told beINSPORTS. "They will help us and we will help them to make an incredible environment to try to do the perfect game, to win the game.

"We don't have to look at anything else other than that we now have one week ahead of us, we can rest and can disconnect for two or three days. Then we have three or four days to prepare the final, because it is a final to retain the title."
