Guardiola aims subtle dig at Mourinho

16 Décembre 2017

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insists his team's stunning start to the Premier League campaign is an exception to the norm and can not be sustained.

"It is a little, little problem", Guardiola said. "They didn't have my size". A win for the Hammers could pile pressure on manager Hughes and the Potters, who would fall beneath their opponents.

In his praise of Mauricio Pochettino's men, and Chelsea, Guardiola seemed to aim another dig at Mourinho and United.

"That is not going to happen", Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference. They remain a top team. They are a very unsafe team. Everyone knows that if someone is out on the pitch getting smashed about they go directly over and help their team-mates.

"I had some conversations with people from their coaching staff", said Pochettino.

City's relentless form, and the spellbinding quality of their football, has led some observers to suggest they could be the finest team England has ever seen.

"We are all different and we all have different challenges, motivations, roles in our life". It's the type of game where you don't need to motivate the players, you don't need to talk too much.

"Only decide the plan, provide the plan to the players and on the day only deliver that plan".

"It's because City are winning, winning, winning they put loud music on".

Was Tupac's Murder Weapon Found?
In 2000, over 3,000 confiscated firearms were transferred to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, including the Glock. Almost two decades ago, the handgun used to shoot Tupac Shakur to his death was found in a backyard in Compton, CA.

Ominously for the rest, however, Guardiola believes his City team still has room for improvement.

Spurs play a similar game to the blues and despite their struggles this season they have more than enough to hurt City.

"Tottenham I think is, with Chelsea, the best team in wanting to play football", he said, according to the Mirror.

"That belongs to Arsene Wenger and his fantastic Arsenal in 2004. But I have the feeling we can do better - much, much better - and we have to try to insist on that". "But I am happy, not with the results, but the way we play". Harry Kane looks back to is best and Delli Ali is due a good game (he was unhappy to be dropped mid-week). Spurs and Everton are the only teams Guardiola has yet to beat in the League.

So how will it feel when it happens?

Guardiola, who hopes to have captain Vincent Kompany available again for City's Carabao Cup quarter-final against Leicester City on Tuesday, said he wants to sign a central defender in January.

"We are so happy and will try to fight and maintain it as long as possible, but that is an exception".

"But at the end, we are going to draw and lose, that's normal".
