Manchester City manager, Josep Pep Guardiola has claimed they are not the best team in the world.
City, on Wednesday night, opened up a 12-point lead at the top of the Premier League table with a routine 2-0 win over Brentford at the Etihad Stadium.
The champions now have 17 wins from their last 19 games, but Guardiola insists Chelsea’s Champions League triumph last season means they are still the team to beat.
“No, we are not the best team in the world, The best team is Chelsea who won the Champions League. The important thing is in three days we go to Norwich and have to win the game.
“This thing about who is the best, I don’t care. Be happy, and try to play better every day and at the end we will see.
“We are in a good position, 60 points at the moment. We have to qualify for the Champions League [next season] because that is the most important target and then arrive in the last few games fighting for the title. This is what I want to do,” Guardiola said.
