"That is why we helped Liverpool to make this step, buy incredible top players and now it is the level you have to reach. He made a good result the last weekend so we'll see".

Pep Guardiola feels Manchester City have become victims of their own success this season.

'In 11 years no one won back-to-back (Premier Leagues) and then we did it by winning 14 games in a row. That's why, when the people say we are not good, I can not forget what this team have done. In NBA teams, in incredible tennis players, there are problems or periods in the season when you struggle a little bit. I would say that is normal'.

The former Bayern Munich boss denied reports this week that his contract at City, which expires in 2021, has a break clause at the end of this term and has spoken of potentially staying beyond his current deal.

City are 17 points behind runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool heading into Sunday's trip to Arsenal, with any realistic hopes of a third straight title already extinguished.

He said: 'The situation we are in is going to help us in the future. I would have preferred to be closer to Liverpool, but it is going to help us.

"Maybe we believe something we are not and reality of sport is to make you (prove yourself) again and again and again", he added on the spectre of complacency. It is tomorrow and the next games we prove how we are as a team.

Guardiola believes Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool are being further fuelled by their determination to win their club's first league title in 30 years.

Guardiola said: 'He (Klopp) has maintained last season's standards for this season.

"I didn't want to think it too much in the beginning of the season but I thought will we be able to do it again?"

"Now the target is to win the next games - focus in the cups and try to win games in the Premier League". We are struggling a little bit to try to challenge and lift this situation'.

'To stay at that level for three, four or five years is so hard.
