Shocking reaction from Pep Guardiola when Manchester united Mentioned as title rivals

Given that Erik ten Hag’s team has had a rough start to the new season, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola spontaneously laughed when asked whether local rivals Manchester United will contend for the Premier League crown this year.

When asked how powerful Manchester United are right now, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola laughed.


WHAT OCCURED? Prior to City’s Champions League opener against Crvena Zvezda on Tuesday, Guardiola addressed the strong starts the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool have had to the new campaign during his Monday press conference. He laughed when a journalist inquired about United.


THE BIGGER PICTURE: It’s clear that the journalist was joking when he asked because United’s season hasn’t gotten off to a great start. After dismal performances away at Tottenham and Arsenal, Erik ten Hag’s team suffered a third loss of the year on Saturday when they lost 3-1 to Brighton at home.


WHERE DO CITY AND UNITED GO FROM HERE? City welcomes Crvena Zvezda to the Etihad Stadium to start their Champions League title defense on Tuesday, while United faces a difficult trip to Germany to play Harry Kane’s Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
