Man City boss Pep Guardiola: Liverpool made us better team

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola appreciated the competition of Liverpool in last season's title race.

Guardiola says his second league success in England was made all the more special by the closeness of the title race.

"The fact we played these 14 games knowing if we draw a game or if we lose a game it will be difficult to retain the title," Guardiola said in an interview for This is Premier League, the review of the 2018/19 season.

"I think they helped us to be a better team, I am 100 per cent convinced on that.

"The value of your title depends on the quality of your contender, your big rival, and I cannot find a better one than Liverpool."
