​Guardiola not buying into Man City form: Next game only thing that matters

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is not getting carried away by his side's form.

Despite a mixed start to the campaign, City are now purring in all competitions, as they attempt to reign in the present league leaders Chelsea.

A 2-1 win over West Ham United on Sunday helped them close the gap, with Chelsea drawing 1-1 against Manchester United later in the day.

"I don't know what is going to happen. I have said what happens in the past has happened," Guardiola told the club's website.

"We go to Birmingham [vs. Aston Villa] on Wednesday to play. The rest is fantasy.

"Thoughts in your mind can create big problems in the team.

"The next game is the only one."
