Manchester City ended up champions last season after winning the league with a record 100 points.
City lost just twice last season, and Pep Guardiola’s side were looking like a team that wouldn’t lose a game this season.
There were speculations that Guardiola’s side could emulate Arsene Wenger’s Invincibles and end the season unbeaten in the Premier League, but such speculations came to an end after Chelsea defeated the champions at Stamford Bridge 2-0.
Guardiola has revealed his frustration after the defeat as he was irked by a question from the media about failing to replicate Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’.
Guardiola said: “Everybody asks me every time.
“Last season it happened the same in that period. I said that isn’t going to happen.
“Yesterday they asked me in the press conference and I said again that isn’t going to happen.
“We are not here to be invincible, we are here to try and be champion, to try and make one point more than our opponents.
“It’s part of the competition, you can lose. But it’s how you lose.
“Have we been like we normally are? Absolutely, yes. We monopolise the ball like Chelsea, we create the chances, we have two thousand million passes.
“They beat us in one counter-attack and one set piece. We played the way we want to play. After that, when the opponent is good it’s always to congratulate them, shake hands and improve for the next game.”
