​Man City boss refuses to play the comparisons game

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has said it was far too soon to compare the current City vintage to his previous successful sides at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

"It's too early to say, because I have players here who I didn't have in the past," he added.

"I don't have players [here] I have in the past. So it's difficult for me to compare. [At Barcelona/Bayern] it was easy to defend our ideas because we won a lot of titles. Here, we didn't win absolutely anything so we'll be judged on that.

"The brilliant style and all these kind of things only I can talk about that and I defend 100% what I'm talking about. You [media] are demanding titles not the [attractive] way we play.

"That is what I have to try and win titles and for that you have to win games."
