Manchester City are currently on a 20 match winning streak in all competitions but Pep Guardiola has issued a warning to his players. City are top of the Premier league, 12 points ahead of their closest rivals United.
City host Wolves on Tuesday hoping to extend their record number of consecutive wins to 21. Pep Guardiola who is known for being a hard taskmaster has claimed that City still have room for improvement.
Guardiola says City have room for improvement
Guardiola has warned he will be on the look-out for players he thinks are taking their foot off the pedal.
“When I feel that everyone is thinking the job is done, or how good it is, this guy is not going to play,” Guardiola told a news conference on Monday. “I’m so intuitive to know exactly the guys who are not ready to continue what we have to do.”
“Always we can do better, that is the target,” Guardiola added. “Especially in the areas of the performance of the individuals we can improve. Every player can improve. When every individual player can improve, the team will improve.”
Guardiola reiterated that Liverpool were the Premier League champions and City still needed to win 8, 9 games to secure the title.
“The champion is Liverpool, we are not. To do it [become champions] we still have to win eight, nine or 10 games – it’s a lot of games.
“There are incredible teams who struggle for four or five games to win games so it can happen to us too. Last season it happened and at the beginning of the season it happened. We were unable to win three games in a row in the first two months.”
