Pep Guardiola has said Manchester City cannot declare themselves set to match the level of Premier League title-holders Chelsea.
City destroyed Watford 6-0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday, to seal three wins in seven days, scoring 15 goals without reply.
Asked if he sees City as a team that is ready to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Chelsea, Guardiola only replied: “We will see. But I think we’ve made a step forward in terms of last season.
“My feeling now is that everybody knows what we have to do, the players know what they have to do, with, without the ball in transition. And that’s so important.
“We weren’t good enough last season, Chelsea and Tottenham were better. You have to accept it.
“You have to accept sometimes the opposition is better. Then you analyse why to improve for the future.
“In an athlete’s career there are maybe 10 or 15 percent happiness moments, you lose more than you win. So you’ve got to enjoy it when you win.”
