The Defending Champions scored the first goal through Jack Grealish before Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford handed Manchester United the maximum points.
The visitors are aiming to win the Premier League title for the third consecutive season but they have Arsenal to wrestle with, the Gunners are currently five points clear of the Citizens and they have the opportunity to make it eight if they beat Tottenham on Sunday.
Guardiola has all but conceded their title hopes is over.
‘I don’t care about the Premier League and the Carabao Cup, we cannot win,’ he told Des Kelly on BT Sport.
‘We won a lot, so it’s not a problem.’
The former Barcelona manager is unhappy with Manchester United controversial equaliser.
‘Marcus Rashford is offside, Bruno Fernandes is not. Rashford distracted our keeper and centre defenders,’ he said,
‘It is what it is. We know where we play. It is difficult for the referees in these stadiums.’
When asked about his team’s chances of defending the title.
‘In general I have no regrets. I don’t care if we don’t win the Carabao Cup or the Premier League, we’ll try.
‘I don’t care when a team performs how we play. It was quite similar to the many, many years we’ve been here.
Manchester City have now lost twice in four days including the 2-0 loss to Southampton in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
Guardiola will be hoping for an immediate response when they face Tottenham on Thursday at the Etihad.
