‘City will struggle to remain unbeaten’

pepPEP Guardiola claims there is no chance of Manchester City going through the Premier League season unbeaten.

City lead the Premier League by five points after winning eight and drawing one of their opening nine games, scoring 33 goals in the process.

They are unbeaten in 13 games in all competitions this season and have equalled a club record by winning the last 11 of them in succession.

Comparisons are already being made with some of the great teams of the past, notably Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ of 2003-04, but City boss Guardiola has refused to be drawn on such records.

“These kind of records, these kind of situations – I know people like a lot the statistics and to compare one to another one with titles, and I am happy for the 11 wins in a row because we showed that we can win a lot of games in a row. But that’s all,” Guardiola said.

“To finish unbeatable, that is not going to happen because we are in a lot of games and a lot of competitions are so demanding, more than ever. To win with this kind of record sounds ridiculous.

“There will be a moment when we are going down. In that moment I am curious and I will test myself as a manager with the players and see how we are are going to react in that situation.” – Sky Sports
