Pep Guardiola has dismissed the opinion that his Manchester City side could finish the season unbeaten, like Arsenal did in the season of 2003/04.
Manchester City have been in a great form this season so far. They’ve won eight games from their nine Premier League matches, as they have scored 32 goals and conceded just four in the process. Their one blip was a home draw against Everton.
Guardiola said, as reported by The Sun, “I am here to win the next one, then the next one and then in May we can say how was the season. But if you ask me if we can finish unbeaten, I say that cannot happen.”
“To have this kind of statistic is so ridiculous because football today is so demanding. We know when we don’t play good football we are going to lose. It doesn’t make matter if the other team is not in the top five or six, because any team can beat us any team can beat anyone.”
The idea of a club matching 2003-04 season’s Arsenal, comes up at least once a year. That no side has yet to match their run highlights what an achievement it was by Arsenal.
Guardiola is wise to distant his team from the idea, as he won’t them getting carried away with their current form. City are the only unbeaten club left in the Premier League after the Red Devils were beaten by Huddersfield on Saturday.
