‘They Are Better’ Pep Guardiola Reveals Best Premier League Team

Manchester City over the last few years have been regarded as the best Premier League team but to Pep Guardiola, the Cityzens are not the best in the league at this moment. The City boss claimed that Liverpool are the better team as they sit at the top of the league table for the second part of the Premier League season.

Pep Guardiola Reveals Best Premier League Team

Man City in recent days have struggled with form in the league, they have failed where many believed that they would win comfortably. The game against Wolves, a defeat to Aston Villa and a draw against Chelsea, Tottenham, and Liverpool served as setbacks for their hope of retaining the league title.

Pep Guardiola’s men did not catch up with Liverpool in 2023 despite the two winning streaks against Everton and Sheffield United. Therefore, Guardiola described Jurgen Klopp’s team as the best Premier League team at the moment.

However, the City manager believes that his team can build on their progress over the Christmas in January clashes. A win against Huddersfield in the FA Cup and a league match against the out-of-form Newcastle United can be what City needed to take charge of the league title race.

“We’re not top of the league, Liverpool are better. We’ve had injuries and some problems, we won the titles, important ones, our level is really good I would say and we are there. Now rest, we all need it. January is less intense than November and December so we prepare for what’s next,” Guardiola said as reported by MEN

During his post-match conference after a comfortable win against Sheffield United, Guardiola spoke about possible winning streaks in the new year. He said: “We made in the past a lot of winning streaks but never when we were there were we thinking about how many games we are going to win. We had rivals like Liverpool or last season Arsenal that we felt that if we lose a game we are not going to win the Premier League so they demanded us to our highest level and we pushed them to the highest level as well.”

According to him, to be the best Premier League team, they would have been at the top of the league table, therefore, he showed his disappointment with some performances this season, particularly a defeat to Wolverhampton and Aston Villa. The treble-winning manager claimed that his side should have gotten more than 40 points going into the new year.

” I had the feeling we could have more points, especially for the three games at home; Liverpool, Tottenham, Crystal Palace. We performed really well but we didn’t get what we maybe deserved but it is football, it is fine. We are going to lose points, so are the others, so try to lose as few as possible.”
