​Man City manager Guardiola: Liverpool still best team in England

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has played down talk of his team being the best in England.

City are on a magnificent winning run that is now stretching to 20 games in all competitions.

They are well clear at the top of the table, while Liverpool are not even in the top four.

Guardiola told reporters: "The best team in Europe in the world are Bayern Munich because they won everything. In England the champions are Liverpool, so they are the best.

"You have to win. In February or March nobody is champions."

He added: "We don't have time [to celebrate the statisic]. There are many games, every three days. We have to rest and think of another one.

"The day of the game, all the managers say when you win you are happy that night but the day after you think of the next one."

He finished: "The history against [Wolves] shows us how tough it is. We know it. We know exactly the type of game we have to play.

"We have to be so intense but, at the same time, calm. They have the ability to punish you. In the last two years it was so tough."
