Man City boss Guardiola: Visiting opponents not intimidated

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola does not believe their opponents are intimidated before they arrive at the Etihad Stadium.

The champions have won 39 of their last 44 Premier League matches at home - a record they will hope to improve when they host Wolves on Sunday.

The City boss said: "My feeling is no (there is no intimidation factor).

"I cannot imagine when teams before the game are not thinking, 'We can do it'.

"I know the managers and how competitive all of them are, how they'll try to seduce the players and say, 'We can do it'. They'll be thinking, 'We can go and do a good game'.

"Sometimes we don't win but when we do it is because we do something good.

"We have to try it against a team we know quite well. We have played many times against Nuno Espirito Santo's team in Carabao Cups and leagues and other stuff."
