Neville: Guardiola has made Man City unstoppable

Manchester United legend Gary Neville says Pep Guardiola has made Manchester City unstoppable.

City have been declared odds-on title favourites, and Neville says that Guardiola is their driving force.

“I played for 20-odd years under Sir Alex Ferguson, I now know what it must have felt like for other clubs at the start of the season thinking that Manchester United were going to win it," he said on Sky Sports' Gary Neville podcast.

“That's how it feels now with Manchester City . You look at them and think 'who can stop that?' You look at their squad and the quality, last year they did what they did at times without Fernandinho, Gundogan plays there, without De Bruyne for months in the season.

“If any other club loses their best players, they would not be able to cope but Manchester City's squad is so deep, the addition of Rodri and Joao Cancelo strengthens them again, they're in that very good position where they just have to add one or two every year."
