Pep Guardiola not interested in debating whether Man City are world's best team


Pep Guardiola brushed off suggestions Manchester City are the best side in the world after moving 12 points clear in the Premier League. The champions saw off Brentford 2-0 on Wednesday to tighten their already firm grip on the title race. Their form continues to attract plaudits but manager Guardiola, who felt his team had needed to dig deep and be patient to see off the Bees, claimed only to be interested in results. He said: “We are not the best team in the world. The best team is Chelsea, who won the Champions League, or River Plate, who won in South America.
