Pep Guardiola Insists City Are Better Than Last Season
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says his side are better this season than they were last season
The Citizens cruised to the title last season with a record 100 points, 19 points more than closest rivals, United. They also won the Carabao Cup in what was a domineering season for them.
But Guardiola’s men have had it tougher this season, as they are placed second behind leaders Liverpool.
The Manchester side have also lost twice in the first half of the season, equalling their total loses last season.
Yet the Catalan tactician still considers his side better off than they were last season.
Speaking to Sky Sports the former Barcelona manager said:
“In little details we are better than last season, which is normal because we have more time together.
“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.”
