“They are going to win their games,” said the 48-year-old, whose side kept the pressure on the Reds with victory in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford in midweek.
“If we win on Sunday, next Monday [against Leicester], and the last game in Brighton we will be champions. All we have to do is focus on what we have to do and win our games.
“We lose a game? Bad luck and next season we will be back, hopefully stronger.”
City can still reach 98 points – just two shy of last season’s record 100-point haul – if they win their last three games, while Klopp’s team could end the season as runners-up on 97 points.
“The difference between this season and last season is one reason – Liverpool,” said Guardiola.
“We did the same [as last season] but Liverpool are much, much better.
“They’ve been incredibly consistent but we don’t have to look at what they do. It’s in our hands.
“That is the little advantage that we have right now.”
