Pep tells Mourinho, Conte & others: We will even get better

Pep Guardiola has warned their rivals they will keep improving setting a new Premier League record for consecutive wins with a 4-0 win over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday.

The win meant City won their 15th consecutive Premier League game, while also maintaining an 11-point lead at the top of the table, while the defeat means Swansea stay rooted at the bottom of the log.

“We can always improve, of course,” Guardiola said after City had backed up their weekend derby victory over Manchester United in style.

“There are always individual mistakes and some movements that are not correct, but the desire to play and win a lot of games is there.

“The performance was so high to have United and Tottenham and in the middle Swansea.

“They are bottom of the league, but we have had so many good comments that sometimes you can be distracted by this kind of thing. But it was the opposite.”

City now turn their attentions to Spurs, who took four points off them in Guardiola’s first season at the Etihad Stadium.

Meanwhile, the former Barcelona boss has turned his attention to Tottenham, whom they play next as the December fixtures bite harder.

Guardiola said of Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs: “Tottenham, with Chelsea, is the best team in the way to play football.

“They don’t expect the other ones, they want to make their own game. It is another amazing test for us. It is every three days, after Tottenham it is Leicester in the Carabao Cup, so there is not too much time to recover.

“But we are ready to face them and try to keep that level we have shown in the last period.”
