But Guardiola, whose side face Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday, has insisted it is far too early to compare his current squad with his title-winning sides at Barcelona and Bayern.
"It's too early to say, because I have players here who I didn't have in the past," he added.
"I don't have players [here] I have in the past. So it's difficult for me to compare. [At Barcelona/Bayern] it was easy to defend our ideas because we won a lot of titles. Here, we didn't win absolutely anything so we'll be judged on that.
"The brilliant style and all these kind of things only I can talk about that and I defend 100 per cent what I'm talking about. You [media] are demanding titles, not the [attractive] way we play.
"That is what I have to try and win titles and for that, you have to win games."
