Pep Guardiola has claimed that his Man City side have ‘increased the level’ in the Premier League, and to be fair to the Catalan coach, it’s hard to argue with him.
Man City brushed aside their bitter rivals Manchester United tonight 2-0 at Old Trafford to move back to the top of the Premier League table, ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, in what has been the most relentless of title races.
If Guardiola’s side win their remaining three games, as many expect them to do, it would mean the reigning Champions will have amassed a sensational 198 points over the last two seasons.
Guardiola was angered in the build-up to tonight’s game by United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s claims that his side commit tactcial fouls, and speaking afterward the Citizens boss was quick to point that his side have raised the bar in English football, while also thanking his clubs fans.
“We increased the level for the Premier League last season with 100 points,” Guardiola told BBC Sport.
”That’s the level. Liverpool are chasing. What they have done is incredible but it’s in our hands. Going to Burnley will be tough and trying to play our game.
“Thank you [to the fans] for support in the last two games. Our supporters are amazing away. I feel it more away than at home sometimes. The players deserve that.”
