Man City boss Guardiola: Cherries best we've faced. The rest (Man Utd) just long ball

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has declared Bournemouth the best team they've played.

By starting the season with eight successive victories, Guardiola's City have achieved something unprecedented for the club.

But the Spaniard played down the significance of that, emphasising instead that the important thing was winning again only three days after the 4-0 home Champions League triumph against Borussia Monchengladbach.

"Numbers are numbers and records will be beaten," said Guardiola, who took charge over the summer.

"What's important is we won a game just three days after a Champions League game, which is always tough.

"And Bournemouth were until now the best team with the ball (we have faced) - the other teams have played long balls."
