Man City boss Guardiola: Liverpool won't have it so easy next season

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists Liverpool won't have it so easy next season.

City are likely to be the most significant threat to Liverpool next term.

Guardiola said: "Hopefully we can learn from our beginning to the season.

"After winning the Community Shield against Liverpool, we dropped points maybe we didn't expect. But I don't know if it's going to happen.

"I think every season the opponents get stronger. Liverpool will remain the strong team they are, we are seeing how Chelsea are investing in this transfer market.

"We saw in the last period how Man United made a step forward.

"Tottenham are going to recover a lot of injured players, with Son, Harry Kane and other players and with an experienced manager like [Jose] Mourinho they are always going to be strong.

"Arsenal with more time with Mikel [Arteta] is going to happen - and Leicester you know.

"Every season the teams are stronger and stronger and it will be more difficult."
