Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes his side are better this season than his title winning squad of last term.
Guardiola won the Premier League title and the Carabao Cup in his second season.
Manchester City have suffered two defeats to Chelsea and Crystal Palace this month, meaning they have already equalled that tally before the halfway stage of the season.
Nevertheless, Guardiola feels his side look stronger as they aim to achieve what no Manchester City squad has achieved in the past – win back-to-back Premier League crowns.
“In little details, we are better than last season, which is normal because we have more time together,” Guardiola said during his pre-match conference.
“Our process, our build-ups, our high pressing, we can use different movements, we have more alternatives to defend into attack and we are more solid when we defend deeper.”
When asked what impressed him so much about that record-breaking title winning season, Guardiola said: “It was our consistency.
“Of course we dropped points, that happens, but after that we were always there, which was the most remarkable thing and what I give the most importance.
“Winning cups or the Champions League, that’s six or seven games where you have to be good, but in the Premier League it can be every three days, which is why it’s the title I like the most.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
