Watch: Pep Guardiola Takes Pop At Man Utd's Style Of Play

Pep Guardiola's second season in charge of Man City is going rather swimmingly: his side sit top of the Premier League table after six games, they are also top of their Champions League group with two wins from two and have yet to concede a goal.

City are top of the Premier League on goal difference from Man Utd, having scored four goals more. It would appear that the season is shaping up for Guardiola and Jose Mourinho to reignite their rivalry from their time managing in Spain.


Speaking to Gary Lineker on the BBC's Premier League show this week, Guardiola voiced an opinion which may have pricked the ears of Mourinho.

Guardiola suggested that Chelsea and Spurs like to play football pretty much everywhere on the pitch. In contrast, he said Man Utd only like to do it in the final third.

I see for example Chelsea, Tottenham, they want to play, they like to play, they like to play build ups, whereas (Manchester) United play long balls, second balls after Fellaini, Pogba and then after they have the quality to play.

I have a lot of respect for my neighbours
