Pep Guardiola

Guardiola won’t be worried about Liverpool and Chelsea – Rio Ferdinand

Premier League Champions Manchester City got back to winning ways today when they beat Newcastle 2-1 at the Etihad.

Guardiola’s side drew their last Premier League fixture against newly-promoted Wolves last weekend, which has seen Liverpool and Chelsea – who both maintained their 100% records today – to move ahead of City at the top of the table.

However, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand doesn’t think Guardiola will be worried by being behind his rivals so early in the season.

“They’ll be aware but it won’t be concerning them at all,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“At this stage of the season, August, you don’t think about the league table.

“You want to get points on the board, get a bit of form, get a bit of momentum going.

“But you won’t be sitting there thinking ‘wow, they’re doing really well, they’re flying away with it’.

“Things can change, especially when it starts going to two games a week.”
