Pep Guardiola believes the standard of the Premier League is ‘getting better’ with ‘every single game difficult’ in the division.
Manchester City have been the dominant force in the Premier League in recent seasons, having won five of the past six league titles. The Citizens are currently second in the table, behind leaders Arsenal, but just two points currently separates the top four sides.
City host Tottenham at the Etihad this weekend, with the visitors fifth after an impressive start under new manager Ange Postecoglou. Spurs opened the season with a 10 game unbeaten run under the ex-Celtic boss, but have fallen to fifth after three straight losses amid injury issues.
Guardiola believes the competition across the Premier League is getting better and better and is anticipating a tough test, as a ‘fantastic’ Spurs side visit Eastlands on Sunday.
“It is a more difficult competition to win in every season. I have said that many times before,” Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference.
“Every season is getting better, with more teams involved [in the title race], so every single game is difficult.
“Spurs is a fantastic team. Yes, they have important absences, but I saw the first 20 minutes against Aston Villa. They created a lot of chances, so they are really good for football.”
