​Man City boss Guardiola: Premier League won't be two-horse race

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola does not believe that it will be a two-horse race for the Premier League.

Many fans and pundits are expecting last season's top two to battle for the title this time around as well.

However, Guardiola believes there is so much quality throughout the league that many teams can challenge for the title his side has won in the past two seasons.

"I believe it will be different," Guardiola told Sky Sports News.

"Every team has made a step forward. The standards ourselves and Liverpool set last season, the other contenders have to achieve that, to take on the challenge to win the Premier League.

"Liverpool and Manchester City showed they can do it, the others have to try. But the quality of the other three, four, five teams, of course they can do it.

"Will they be closer? I think so."
