Pep Guardiola has warned that Manchester City “will be better” next season.
City are on course to become the first team to defend the Premier League title since 2009, having successfully held off the challenge of Liverpool thus far.
A victory over Brighton would secure the crown once more, and Guardiola has warned that his squad will only improve going forward.
“We will be better. Next season we will be stronger. I am sure. We will be stronger. We will be better,” he said.
“This season we understand what we want to do quicker. We don’t change too much our patterns, our way we want to play, so that is why everyone is more comfortable in what we want to do, in how we want to defend.
“I think we attack much better. Teams when they face us that have a low, low block, an incredible low block, that means 11 playing in the box, so how we attack them, we concede not too many counter-attacks, the set-pieces we defend well.
“In general, especially in the Premier League we were so consistent. In the Champions League we were a little bit more vulnerable, for the quality of the opponents and the tension of the desire to do well, but I think that is the process.
“We have done quite similar things to last season, but we repeat every three days so at the end we do many things better.”
