Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has admitted that his side have lost rhythm and sharpness, thus agreeing that they are no longer the best team in the world.
Guardiola spoke ahead of City’s trip to Kenilworth road for the Premier League match against Luton Town on Sunday.
City have failed to win a single game in their last four games, drawing 3 and losing the last game to Aston Villa 1-0 at Villa Park.
However, despite Guardiola’s marking down of City, Luton boss, Rob Edwards, hailed Guardiola’s team as the best in the world.
In response, Guardiola said: “They’re doing really well. Really really well for the way they played. Top clubs and teams like Arsenal and Liverpool have struggled to win, it will be the same for us.
“Hopefully it doesn’t make us weaker, thank you for the words. It’s a football game and at that moment, we are not the best team in the world as we are not getting results.
“When you are winning games, you are the best team in the world. When you are not, it’s a crisis. It can be exaggerated on once side but that’s the reality.”
