Pep Guardiola insists that Manchester City’s stunning start to the Premier League cannot be sustained.
Manchester City set a new record of 15 consecutive victories in the Premier League, opening a 11 points lead at the summit.
The Etihad Stadium outfit will face Tottenham on Saturday, and will hope to continue their umbeaten run.
But the City boss is adamant they will not be able to match Arsenal’s famous ‘Invincibles’ of 2003-04.
“That is not going to happen,” Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference.
“That belongs to Arsene Wenger and his amazing Arsenal in 2004. We are going to lose games.
“Today is completely different with the intensity and a lot of games. Now, [our run] is an exception. It is not normal what we have done.
“We are so happy and we are going to fight to maintain it as long as possible. But people, teams lose games and that is going to happen.”
