MANCHESTER – Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola gave an unexpected response regarding Manchester United. The reason is, he laughed when he heard that the club nicknamed the Red Devils was a challenger for the 2023/2024 Premier League title.
Manchester City itself is still the favorite to win the Premier League this season. With the status of defending champion, the team nicknamed The Citizens successfully wiped out 5 matches with a win and is in the top position.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Arsenal are competitors for Erling Haaland et al to defend the title. In fact, Pep Guardiola acknowledged the greatness of Liverpool and Arsenal as competitors.
“You know how strong Arsenal is. Yesterday I watched their match at Goodison Park and they were extraordinary. Liverpool showed their mentality again,” said Pep Guardiola as quoted by ESPN, Tuesday (19/9/2023).
The Spanish coach laughed about Manchester United. However, Pep Guardiola believes that Manchester United and Chelsea started the season less well, but time will allow both teams to find their best playing rhythm.
“They didn’t start the way they wanted, like Chelsea. But still, MU is MU and Chelsea is Chelsea, sooner or later they will find their rhythm,” he said.
Currently, Manchester United is ranked 13th in the standings with 6 points. The Red Devils are in disappointing form, because they lost their last two matches.
