Guardiola 'more than satisfied' with City's start to season
In a bizarre claim after having dropped five points from a possible nine already - against teams they should be beating - the Man City manager has declared himself 'more than satisfied'.
Liverpool sit three points behind Everton at the top of the table, but play a game in hand today against Aston Villa, which could potentially put Jurgen Klopp's side eight points clear after four games.
Of course, that sort of lead isn't insurmountable, it could well be wiped out in three games. But obviously, the assumption from many pundits is that Liverpool will be as relentless as we were last season so an eight point lead at this point is a big concern for an inconsistent City.
But the City boss isn't too concerned, even declaring himself to be relatively happy with his side's start. Weirdly. He said: "We have one less game.
"I know we have to win games to be on top but I am not going to start after three games to think if we are going to win the league. It is what it is.
"I know the situation, where we are, how we finished last season, the players we have. I am more than satisfied with what we have done so far."
